Mail arrived- Mother May 27
Day May 14, 27th
Mrs Ainslie Mills & Cutting Paper Diary jumps from March 24 to April 3rd evidently intended to be included in Queen Business-
Many thanks for all
Khaki shirt not here yet will be acceptable on arrival. Think all rot about lonely soldier biz only on the make I get plenty- you know the saying-
"If men don't love & go to War
"What do they get their manhood for"
