Dear Dad and Mum

We are getting along very well. Today I was on what they call the "Sanitary Fatigue." My work consisted of changing out the recepticals through which the dishwater drains away. As a good part of this had to be removed with my hands it was a pretty greasy job. After that I and another chap picked up any bit of rubbish we found around the eating tables and put it together with the scraps from the drainage into the incinerator. After that I only had about an hours work. This was all I had to do the whole day. I spend a good part of the spare time in eating the biscuits Helen cooked for me. I got you note with the socks you sent. I might as well tell you that on opening the parcel I found only three socks. I dont see why you couldn't have sent five and be done with it. I at least would have had two pairs. Please tell Adrian to try to get into "B squadron in troop one" as that is what I and Frank are in.

Well I will close for present with love to all

From your loving son

Sid. W.
