November 11th
Dear All Well I think you can address me as Lieut (A) John Lisle RNVR now. You might confirm this for me Doreen if you will as I think I was one on or around November 3rd. Have not heard from Joan Egerton recently and your letters I'm afraid much too few & far between only had one this month so far from Grandma. Hope the blanket and warm clothes arrive soon as it is very cold at nights and quite sharp frosts. I am the only one here who has not received photographs shall have to chastise you severely when I get home. Should like the photograph of Doreen in uniform—the one I used to keep in my room. Have just had a twenty first Birthday in our room, we made a cake out of crushed biscuits raisins - “Bergers [?] Food” egg powder sugar etc. It didn't turn out at all badly although not quite up to your standards Mother. Please give everyone my Love and keep your chins up.
Love
John
