With Molle’, Molle’
The heck you say
‘Cause my moustache
Is hear to stay.
And besides young Jeannie likes it. I’m swishing off to Mitcham the day after tomorrow for a crafty week’s leave.
Thanks for the valentine. It was pretty good, but what I want to know is where did you get a coin. Thought you were broke after your last shopping spree. Have sent you and Mary each a pair of souvenir wooden shoes and a braclet made of Dutch coins, Hope the parcel gets through O.K.
So you have Gladys enlisted in the duty hate campaign against my effort on the upper lip. Where can the two of you find ten men in a hurry to make me shave it off?
I’ve heard some feeble stories in my time but those the two of you wrote sure took the cake.
Guess this is the lot for now
