11 Jun 1943, W J Carrie's wartime diary
Letter No 6 turned up today. Not much new in it - but you put "Pam" H in this one so it must be Miss Harrop. You were going to make Strawberry Jam for me - I'm afraid it will have grown whiskers before I see it! You'd had a letter from Jean - Butters I presume. Harry hasn't had any parcels either - though he had a letter last November 2 months before I did.
I've been in bed all day - my cold has gone to my innards and I've had a rotten time - some pain too but I think I'm on the mend. No paper accessible so I'll stop AML BB.
