Great excitement here the last few days - the women and children are to be repatriated and the sick and in firm.  To my surprise I find I am on ''A" list - Sick - it's this blasted anaemia.  I've to have another blood count tomorrow - it's going up slower this time and I've had a lot more injections - I only had 4 in October last year (though 2 of them were 5 times as strong as the ones I've had recently) - I've had 13 since  the last week in March.  I look a lot better now - in fact I'm nearing a crest but if these injections stopped I'd slide down into the trough again!  So I hope I do get away though I hate going with the women and children on a sick ticket!  Perhaps after all we'll have Aug 31st together.

I won't let myself get excited  over the prospect - it would be such a flop if nothing happens. But it seems certain now that the women will get away soon - that will be a blessing.

So Goodnight Darling.

Hope on!          BB.
