Re: radio broadcast (Letter, July 1945)


My dearest Mother,

Thank you for your letter. The broadcast has brought me a number of letters, including one from Fred. Cox which I am about to answer. I am glad that Uncle Loo heard it. I must see him soon, but just at present I have no car of my own & so no petrol except for business. I am running one of my works’ cars. I hope to buy a small one for private use very soon.

Marjorie has been feeling better until a day or two ago when she developed a boil or carbuncle in her armpit and a gathered finger. They are both clearing up. It is odd that she so frequently gets that sort of trouble these days.

We have fixed up to go to Stoke Gabriel in S. Devon for our holidays, starting on Aug. 28th.

Last Wednesday we went with Edgar Percival, to see Tommy Trinder in ‘Happy and Glorious’ at the Palladium. Very amusing. Afterwards we had dinner and danced on about a square foot of floor at Zeraplino’s.

On Friday, the Handley Pages gave a cocktail party at the Dorchester. M & I went & had dinner at the RAC afterwards.

Did you get a copy of ‘The Listener’ with the broadcast in? It is the issue dated June 28th.

The boys are well. I am supposed to be playing for the Fathers against the School at Brunswick on July 14th at cricket!

With love

Your own son
