US Troops in Britain, WWII

“Dear Jean and Jerry,

I got your letters from the 2nd and 7th. Sometimes the service is very good. It all depends on shipping space available. A lot of other things naturally have priority.

I guess I told you that we won that final game- now we play volleyball and softball so I’m keeping well up on my athletics. You’re candy was most welcome- I ration it out each day so it will last longer. I was just thinking about some good Chow Mein again. I always think of it as a good Sunday evening lunch.

This country is becoming more beautiful every week. There are various types of pretty wild flowers and things are as green as green could be. Ask Milly to tell you more about it as she read a book that describes the people and customs well. It hasn’t changed in the present day like our country does.

Give my best to the friends you run into. Do you ever see Christ Haag? I suppose his lad is as big as his pop by now.

Love, Beany”
