Letter No 16 turned up 2 days ago - I've been lucky, I've had 9 and lots of people have had much less and a few have still not heard at all.  I have Nos  4, 5, 6, 8, then 15, 16, 17, 18 and  No 20.  The last one was the greatest thrill  of course.  Then your Red Cross forms of 23/12 & 20/1/43!  were of course still better - we are not allowed to send replies on them as we are supposed to have a monthly letter.  I did send in replies - so I must try to get my forms back to keep.           No more news and very weary.  The landings on Sicily have, however, cheered us up - the end is just around the corner now.     AML.  B.
