Thurs. evening

Dear mom

I have just come back from seeing a plane crash that was here this evening. The pilot was killed and one of the students were seriously injured. Its really a complete wreck. While coming in for a landing it tried to get out of the way of another aircraft and nosed into the deck.

I cant think of much news tonight mom. I received the very lovely chain letter tonight. I am hoping that you and Dad will be here with in a week. Two weeks from tomorrow is the big day. We start exams next Wed. and only write for three days (not all the time of course). We have been getting quite a few talks lately on what we can expect overseas. They are really interesting. Today we had a talk by a Squadron Leader with D.F.C. and bar.

I was up today for my last photography trip here. I have finished all my day trips and have two more night trips to put in.

Twelve of us birdmen have been invited to a weiner roast tomorrow night. Its being put on by some girls who are supplying everything - not ad eh.

We are getting a 48 this weekend but I wont be going very far. I had a letter from your friend - Mrs. Parker, inviting me out to her farm. I suppose I could go out this weekend but I must do some studying. If you come into Wpg. I suppose you will be seeing her.

Well mom that's about all for now, hope to be seeing you soon.
