Letter re: Busk Memorial Prize


My dearest Mother,

I got home too late to write last night, as I had to call at Hawkers at Kingston after leaving Town. Marjorie was not with me as she was helping at a local fete.

You will be pleased to hear that The Royal Aeronautical Society have awarded me the Busk Memorial Prize this year. I don’t know what it is worth yet. It was for the lecture I gave in Nov. 1933, and is considered something of an honour. I shall receive the award at the Conversazione which takes place next Thursday evening.

I was very surprised at the cutting you sent me about Victor Adams. I have not seen any further news about him. I don’t know if the Birmingham newspapers have said anything more. I was sorry to hear that his Father was killed. He was a cheerful man & I always liked him.

This pen is exc….? & my writing in consequence looks rather odd.

We all send out love & look forward to seeing you.

Your own loving son
