Dear Mother:-

We have been here a fornight now but it seems more since we arrived in England. We are still in segregation but expect to be out tomorrow or the next day. I am still uncertain of my address but and will be until we are out of segregation, but write to me at the address I sent in my last letter. When you get my permanent address which I will send as soon as I know it, I wish you would now and then send me some "Youths Companions" and any Truro papers you can get hold of. We got some Truro news the other day from the Truro fellows who are here and the certainly welcome.

I don't expect to get my pass for some months now but we all get one sooner or later. I think I told where we are going- to Scotland. I expect I will have plenty to write about when I return.

Iam starting the signaller's course here, I think. It begins when we get out of segregation. I am not absolutely sure that Iam going to be among those picked but I am pretty sure of it.

Be sure and send me your address. I don't know for sure what it is altho I think your at Lady Fraser's. I am sending them to Sackville and letting Auntie Vide forward them to you. That is all right isn't it.

I am going to walk to Bramshott some Sunday afternoon when we are out and see the Truro fellows there. Does Dr.Randall know Iam over here I would like to see him if I could.

Is there anybody else in England you know. Aunt Emily is here you say but you don't know where she is. I wonder if it is any place near here.

Did you give Mrs.Mahon that photo and get one of Herman yet.

Well that is all I can think of for now. I will write again when we get out.

Your son
