Dear Betts, -
Well sis – I've quite a few letters from you here – so I had better “get cracking.”
First one is #25 – June 28th – at the time of writing it, you were sunning yourself in the back after finishing your exams. You were a little skeptical as to your results in your exams, but I see by a later letter that you passed them all – congratulations sis – good show!
Oh yes – Johnny is getting along famously – he's collected a gong – D.F.C. & he's now a Flight Lieutenant – pretty snazzy eh! I have to write a letter to him tonight too. He feels pretty tough about Mandel – like myself he saw Mandel quite a few times since we came over – but we'll get even!
As to what I'm doing – well I'll tell you one thing – there are quite a few cities in Germany – that I've seen burning – don't need as much coal to heat their homes after we pay them visit – great fun what?
George is still with me – in another crew. He's on leave at present. As for Alec Podolsky I don't know where he is – he was on leave when I was posted.
Your #26 was written just before you went to camp - & from the sound of #27 – you had a good time at camp.
Lois Neilson sounds just like her sister Anna – must be a barrel of fun.
You mentioned something about some pictures – well how about it?
This will be all for now -
Lots of Love -
Yours – Bill.
