I have just come in from supper and I thought I would sit right down and write you a letter so that you would receive it by Saturday. I am not taking my 48 hour leave until next week and dear and I would just as soon do that as it would have made it too long until the next time I saw you if I had come home this weekend. I figured that we get Good Friday, Saturday and Sunday off but that I would take mine the weekend of the 15th or the following weekend, I think that would the best poker, but we could discuss it next weekend when I am home anyway.
Well dear I received $1.00 from the Service Union and a paper they are putting out monthly with all the news. Emile Andrews is now a father I rather think that it was another case and example of someone not being too careful before they were married dear.
Well darling let me see what I have done. Monday night I saw this picture “Tender Comrade” and it was a real tear jerker, the girls might like it but I did not think much of it. Tuesday night I went to a concert on the station and it was only fair. Thursday night I went to the Rotary Club in Lachine. Tonight “Cry Havoc” is on at the station show and I guess I will see it.
Lloyd is planning on brining his wife down here on the 1st of next month, it isn’t much trouble to get a place down here at all. In fact they had a number of signs on the notice board at the Rotary Club. One was for 2 rooms and asked for a airman’s wife and child. I feel rather sorry for Marg and Ted, if I had to go overseas. I wouldn’t mind so much if it was after the baby was born. Then I would know you were alright and I know you would feel better if I was around and it is comforting to know that you are only 7 hours away from me and by the way dear we will just have to decide on a name this next time I am home.
The weather down here is not so good today but we have been having wonderful weather lately. What a difference form Halifax. It would be nice if you could get down for a week or so in the summer dear but maybe the war might be over by then.
You tell me that I am going to be very excited and nervous when the baby comes dear, but I think that I will make a very good husband and father to help and assist you with the baby. I think that changing a diaper will be a great thing and I look forward to the chance to do it. Walking with the baby, feeding the baby and all the things that come with being a father is what I have been looking forward to and any help that I can be you can rest assured that I will do my duty.
Well dear I guess that is about all for now but I will drop you another letter on Sunday and so until then from the very bottom of my heart.
All my love darling,
One thought on “March 16th, 1944”
Every time Bill mentions/guesses that the war will end soon I just want to cry! Still such a long way to go!
