This week has been one of the most satisfactory I have spent since I have been out here. At long last the equipment has arrived after many months of waiting and wondering if it really would come. I am much happier now that I have got something to occupy my mind. I am quite willing to work 24 hours a day on radio if necessary. In fact the more I have to do the better I shall like it.

This month I have applied for a commission as radio officer in the R.E.M.E. I was recommended by the radio officer Mr Hill after an interview, and yesterday I went for an interview with the colonel.

Today I have had a great longing for my darling one, all my happiest thoughts have come back to me and I love her more than ever before. I have our photograph on my bench all the time and every time I look at her I realise that she is the loveliest and most inspiring girl in the world. God bless you sweetheart and may he bring us together again very soon.
