This is where we made our first stop five weeks after leaving Wellington. We were very glad to reach London without meeting any German submarines or armed cruisers. We are only twenty miles from where the Germans dropped bombs last night.
I hope you are having a good season and are all well.
Yours Sincerely
L R Drinkwater
