Lieut. H.S. Burnard
(Sept) Sunday 25/43
Haven't heard from you lately but the mail usualy comes in Sunday nite so I might get one to-night.
I got a weekend off this week and went down to see Shorty at Bournemouth but as our luck hasn't changed I missed him again. When he wasn't at the station I found where he had been billeted and learned that he had been moved up to Middlands on the 21st. I was there on the 24th. It was a very nice trip and strange enough I didn't find the traveling crowded. As soon as I missed Shorty I had to start back to camp again as its impossible to find any room or place to sleep for the night. I never thought but Mr. Conrod is a rather prominant person at the station and he could have fixed me up if I had seen him. But I thought he would be busy so never bothered.
There was a tour leaving our Camp to go and see Windsor Castle but as I was on weekend I missed that too so sure had a heck of a weekend.
My drivers course is over and I don't know what I'll be in for next. There are so many officers here that its hard to get on a course. And if youre not on a course your just doing one think after the other that never gets you anywhere.
Have seen several shows lately. The Womens' Land Army have a camp quite close tours and some of the girls are very nice. They are mostly girls from London who were working at no-essential industries and had their choice of joining the Auxiliary Service or the Land Army. I find them much more intelligent that the local females.
Can't think of much else to write about. Hope everyone is fine. I'm in the best of health.
