Darling Ma & Junie;
Just got up about one hour ago, to listen to the news; about the Italians getting another licking at Tobrouk.
By the way, a good friend of mine has had wonderful success there, what a pity I took sick, maybe I could have been along too, knocking h out of Ginnies.
This last defeat takes one spoke out off the Axis wheel.
Christmas mail is now started arriving from everyone but you. I just can’t understand it. My barber just arrived for my morning shave, not allowed to do it myself yet.
Was up twice yesterday. 1 hour 15m all told.
1 hour & half to-day.
A big kiss
