Image of page 2

The planes roar overhead all the time. A right sweet sound. There are mostly Flying Forts B-26 + some advanced trainers, which you see diving on the forts - what a sight. This is for gunnery practice. The gunners have cameras which take pictures when they press the trigger. In this way they can determine how + when a gunner is shooting soon as the film is developed.

Gee I miss you honey. I can hardly wait till I finish + get my furlough or rather delay en route or whatever you want to call it.

Say honey when you send my watch - whenever it gets ready be sure and insure it. I don't know how the mail service is here yet as I haven't gotten any mail as yet. I feel lost without the darned thing.

I guess I should write to Miss [Lovrien?] tonight. I used to bitch about not being able to get into the air corps, in every letter, so I should break the news to her. She deserves to know after all the woes she's had from me. So I'll sign off + drop her a line

Write hone + give me all the goings. I love you baby. Enuff for today - more to morrow

All my love

Kenje
