Dear All
I wonder how long this will take to reach you. I have heard that letters do occasionally take as little as two weeks at times, have not heard from you yet but trust I shall by the end of May at least, although I have told myself that I must not be disappointed if this is not so. Went to Church this morning and thought you would be there also. Have put my name down to study German and also the “Rudiments of Music” but hope that “Flour Milling” will eventually occupy most of my studying time as I have now decided that travelling is going to my career after the war so want to get all the gen [?] I can on the subject. In my short life so far I have packed such a lot in experiences and near squeaks that shall be glad to settle down quietly to a more peaceful life. How is Doreen's Doctor pal? Hope he is OK wonder what will happen in that direction. Am taking care to look after myself physically as well as mentally Some fellows who have been Kriegies (Prisoners) three years or more with barbed wire around them all the time are experiencing pretty rough going however hope this wretched business will be over so that we shall be together soon. Kind regards to all
All my Love
God Bless You All
John
