Bandsman W Metcalfe 46534 Aldershot
I got back to barracks at 12.30 last night and this morning I was told by one of the boys that my leave had been extended and that they had sent the telegram at 8 o’clock last night. I wish I had prepaid it and then I should have had an answer much quicker. I am sending photograph of the band. It’s not bad. I will be sending the large one home tomorrow. I am wondering now what I should have been doing if I had received the answer quicker. It is 3 o’clock now. We have got to play at Officers’ Club this evening from 4 till 6 o’clock and then if there is time I think I will go to church.
Please will you let me know when the Harvest Festival is: how many more Sundays and I will try to work another week-end. There is nothing like trying. Well my Dear there is nothing more to say now so I will close with
Love for ever
