A censored letter.

Apr 19th, 2012

21 November 1942.

To wish you both a happy New Year and hope that I shall see you again before it ends. Just now I am in the camp hospital with a slight [here the word is rubbed out and ┬áthe word “influence” inserted in a different hand – probably meant to be influenza. As it turns out in the next letter Wilfred had jaundice and there is a documented outbreak of this at Chieti – more of this later – admin] but the treatment is very good and I shall be out again before you read this. In fact I am enjoying the little change as much as a holiday. Hoping that you all keep well and cheerful and the kettle boiling.

With love from Wilfred
