Dear Family

I find I'm the fortunate posessor of an air-mail form, so here goes. Thanks very much for the Dionnes book, and socks and sock-stretchers which will be very I also got the Gazette with Hairp's ad in it, was very good indeed. Also got some pretty airmails from Mum and Nan, and a telegram Turpins, for which thanks.

I'm enjoying the new job very much, to say the new pip. I'm right in the middle of a … the lines of trying to improve things, and very short while a lot of people are going very annoyed with me for interrupting their blissful slumber. Should be good fun.
In changing jobs, I've now got a driver batman who is very good.

I've always been pretty lucky about batmen, which is handy.

I'm still going out with my Wren, which is almost my world's record. Name is Kay (for Kathleen) Thompson, and she's one of the few of my flames about whom I'm sure you would thoroughly approve.

On which note, I'll close. Love to you all, Geoff.
