Letter 31: June 15, 1941
P/O H.H. Pibus,
Once more on the way across the big pond, but this trip is a lot different than the last one and I don’t mean maybe.
It has been just as smooth as possible all the way, a couple of days with a night swell to relieve the monotony – also a few stomachs – otherwise nothing of particular interest.
We’ve certainly had a grand trip so far and have been wonderfully looked after – no kicks at all in that respect – although it’s a wonder if there’s any food left on the ship.
I had hoped to be able to get across to St. John for a weekend, but unfortunately they sent me off too soon, for me to be able to wangle the necessary time off.
Give my love to Hugh, Eileen & the family, & tell Barb I’m looking for a letter.
This address is better than the one at the beginning. The name & number are the same though.
