Letter written 14/5/1960 to "Crumbs" (who?), just a few months before his death:

Dear Crumbs,

.......... Hope you have more or less settled in, Maria well, but she does far too much, but who could keep her quiet!?

We go Portcawl on 25th for 15 days. The doctors have not defeated my ailments, and am getting a bit fed up with them, as don't think they take much interest in panel patients, but pills at 3/9 each, 3 times daily, a ???? at 3 guinees a time are a bit too steep for me.

I went to Slim Bridge (Wild Fowl Trust) on Wedensday, most interesting although geese had gone North. Also went Shrewsbury today week back for a Regimental Reunion. Nothing happening here.
