Sept 19th 1942
This morning we had our last exams and what a grand feeling it is to be all through. Tonight we celebrate—after the longest period of total abstemiousness I have had in years.
We don’t get our marks until after we go thru the Selection Board next Wednesday but I am sure most of mine are excellent. This morning we had wire less and already we know that 26 of our flight of 43 got full marks. I think I was one of these. The last exam was a drill test and I was a bit nervous about the idea of drilling the whole flight but when I got out there it was fine and the officer said I was very good.
Next week we get some revolver practice, commando tactics, gas chamber test (gas masks and tear gas) and a prop. parade (when we get our LAC badges).
We should leave here Friday or Saturday night. I may go to Vancouver first. I have not decided yet.
With love from
