Letters of December 1945

 

Whittington Barracks,

Lichfield,

Staffs.

Dec.1.45.

My Darling,

I'm pleased to say I got a letter from you today, and pleased to hear you had a good time at the party.

It would have been just the job if I could have been with you, but I would feel a bit embarrassed among so many girls, especially in the dark.

I do hope you don't have to have your ring cut off, probably the swelling will go down in a few days, I do hope so anyhow.

I have not had any mail from anybody but you this week, I have written to them all, and now I am sitting back waiting for their answers.

Well sweetheart mine, I really don't know what to write about, but while I think of it I shall address your letters to Stoke after Sunday, so if you miss a day you will know where they are going.

The postman will be calling regular then, at the bungalow won't he, I'll see to that, they will all know then too how many letters you have been receiving won't they, but it doesn't matter really does it.

You will most likely get your leg pulled, but I'm sure you can hold your own now, if I know you at all.

Well darling, it will soon be the day for you to leave Sheffield now, I shall be thinking of you Wednesday morning, and wondering how you are getting on, and where you are.

Do you know I have got the so-and-so tooth ache, it does not ache really bad, but just a persistent dull sort of ache, it's not through what one of the mess waiters said it was, but is decayed in the centre of it.

I really don't know what to write about darling, but I must make the letter as interesting as I can, all I can think about is how to get home the quickest on Dec.10. I am really looking forward to those few days that we will be spending together.

The sgts. have a social evening in full swing here, quite a lot of lady followers too, you know the sort I mean.

Well darling, it is now twenty past eleven, and time for a little shut eye, so I will close darling, and go to sleep to dream, and dream of you.

Give my best wishes to all the girls before you leave them, and wish them every success in their nursing careers, the best of health and good luck in the future.

Darling, you know you have all my love, but I can always say I am sending a bit more can't I, “Darling mine I love you”.

Till tomorrow sweetheart, all my love, and kisses, till we meet again,

I am yours Ever, and

For Always. Henry X X X
