Off we go again, and first of all thanks for Dad’s letter which I got yesterday.
I went to see the specialist again yesterday and he was quite pleased and satisfied. I am now completely better except for a few small scars on my legs, and they are disappearing. The only thing is that now I don’t need any treatment they are catching me for more parades. I have dodged most of them for several weeks. But while I’ve been dodging they’ve picked out 50 “smart men” for the actual parade in June, so I’m hoping I shan’t be on that!
I’ve got an idea that I might be posted next week although I’ve heard nothing definite yet. I shall welcome a change. I know I could be in a much worse place than this but this unit isn’t much good and there’s such a depressing atmosphere. In any case nearly everybody will be away from here in about six weeks.
I’m still continuing my afternoon bathing. The temperature here the day before yesterday got up to 95 so you can imagine that the water is quite pleasant. I really don’t know how I shall stand the cold when I get home next winter, because it will get a lot hotter here about July time. Still plenty of chaps have spent about three years here and gone back to an English winter so I should be OK after just one Summer. Actually Alex is about the coolest place in Egypt.
I have now got a present for Gwladys so all I have to do is get something for Dad and I’ll be sending a parcel. I’ve got a trinket box for Gwladys and I think she’ll like it. Even if it is of no use it looks quite nice and has souvenir value. I’ll try to get a pocket knife for Dad but up to now I haven’t seen anything suitable.
That’s about all once again. I’m on duty tomorrow but I’ll probably write again on Sunday.
Hope you are all well,
