Letters, diaries and photographs from World War II

As usual

3rd February 1946


Just a little note to be included in your parcel. You will already have received the letter I intended to enclose but in writing I was too late to post the parcel so sent off the letter anyway.

You may also have gathered that while I was writing to you a letter arrived from you in which you say you hope the pyjamas have shape. You won’t think these have nor are they dainty so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Oh, in case it makes any difference I like them very much and I think they will suit you—see!

Russell got home about 12.30 this morning—church parade had ben cancelled so he nipped put quickly—and we are now about to have lunch.

Well, sweetheart, there is no more news and I want to pack up this parcel.

All my love is yours my sweetheart and Anthony’s.

Take great care,

I’m still your very own,

Johnnie xxxx
