Dear old Dad.
Here I am flapping again. What a life!
I am flying a machine called D.H.6 which refuses to
do anything funny and dodders around in quite
a drunken fashion. Capital machine to learn on.
They have only just got them, and nobody
understands the RAF engine so I’ll be busy.
The C.O. is a very young major named Neale
he seems a decent sort of fellow, I will get on
with him alright. My quarters are not a patch
