Helen and Howie


Dearest Helen and Howie.

Well my love here I am once more just to say helo and let you know I am OK. Much to my supprise I am still with the R.C.E.M.E. only I am up with Stan. Baptised remember him I was realy supprised to see him. Bill Folk is here to so its not so bad here when you have the boys Stan is sitting reading a papper now. Dud you receive any letter I sent from holding unit yet on note I should say we are planing on going to see the show some time tonight. did you tell mother when you got my last letter I am going to try and write her tonight. I have so darn many I should write but it seems I just can’t get around to it, I was showing Stan my snaps last night and you know talking over old times even the night he took you to the dance and I took Naden. remember our first night Boy what could I do to have it all over again I have never run into Mr. Brown yet but the other boys have seen him. You know I was just trying to figure out how I could get leave home today but it is just to bad I havn’t been over long enough. And there isn’t any way I can dubble the years up So I guess I will just have to wait. But the boys that are married in England seem to be getting them by the papper today. Say I won’t be getting any mail from you for a while I guess as it always takes a long time to catch up. By the way you had better address all your letters to M36468 Cn Evans S.W. No. 7 C.I.B. Workshop

Ha ha. He shor takes after you though. Well it looks like I had better quit as I havn’t much to write about only that I love you dearest and of course I always will and just hope and pray that we can get this dam war over with and get together for good. How is shorty I had a letter from him wich I havn’t answered from him some time ago. I shor wish I could get caught up on my letters for a change. Well honey I must close now. And I will say if I can get around to a good long letter tomorrow to you shore isn’t much to write about only. That I have met some of the boys and I run into a lot from the 6th my old bty.
