(Address as usual)
My very dearest girl: —
Today there was an “Overseas Draft” wanted — I volunteered — was accepted — passed the doctor with flying colours. He said I was in splendid shape.
Tonight I get my kit—and tomorrow I begin my real—really work—the kind you will be proud of.
I shall write every slightest opportunity.
Wish me luck!
Another letter tomorrow.
Your own loving pal and husband,
