I hope that you had an enjoyable weekend and that the weather did not prove too warm for you, and also that you had a weekend off for the holidays. As I told you in my last letter I was working practically all the time and I have had a few more extra hours in and now we go to sea tomorrow for our diving trials so I think myself that I shall be pretty glad when this week is over.
Now I've got all my moans off my chest I hope you excuse me in having to take them on your shoulders again. If all goes well and we have no further mishaps with the boat we shall all leave here on June 14". We had a very good evening last night. A crowd of us from the boat went and played a crowd darts and finished up with a good sing song and all the people there said it was the best evening they had had for years. On Tuesday coming we are having another farewell dance and this time all the proceeds are going to the aid of charity so someone will benefit about L25, it is a pity we have to leave so soon or else we would be having another farewell dance.
I have heard nothing more about the marriage allowance age been dropped but I suppose soon we shall be getting fall particulars and then we shall be able to arrange for our wedding which I hope will take place about October, but please do not give your notice in until we can actually get together and make final preparations darling.
Have just had a knock on the door and off to work I go so I shall drop you a line very soon so for the present Au Revoir with all my love, lots of kisses and best wishes
Always Your Own Ever - loving
