Dear Dad and Dyfan

Have great pleasure in letting you know that I received your letter dated July 31 was exceedingly glad to get it. It has taken quite a long time to come though. Still better late than never. I can’t understand how you don’t get my letters in better order than you do. June 29 and July 23 arriving at the same time is ridiculous I write to you at least twice a week. You are asking if I am a sergt no I am not my address now is 241261 Corpl GC Roberts 159 Bde Trench Mortar Battery EEF. You say you are worrying about it. It is very unjust but it’s not worth bothering about so please don’t worry any more I don’t worry about anything much. I have had the result of the other exam and am very disappointed about it I had 40 out of 50 I can’t understand where I dropped 10 as I answered all the questions correctly and I think it is a mistake but never mind I must try and pull up in the next exams. Sorry to hear Dad and Mailys are not well. Hope you will soon be alright. I am feeling in the pink these days. Well I hope you will enjoy your holidays in Swansea would not mind being there with you. Best love and wishes to you from Goronwy.

Dyfan will be a Hercules by when he finishes in the blacksmith.
