Reading 9.15 AM
8 Dec 16
Mrs. Jacob Uffelman

[Page 1]
Royal Flying Corps,
Wantage Hall,
Dec 8th 1916
Dear Aunt Eliza,
I just received your socks to-day and I want to thank you so much for them. They are fine and I can assure you that they will stand me in good stead.
As you know I have transfered from the infantry and it is much nicer here. I will be here till February but after that I haven’t the least idea where.

[Page 2]
I am pretty well fed up with this climate so I don’t much care where they send me only I do with I could go to Egypt.
I suppose Willie and Sheldon are still in London and won’t be over here till Spring. Tell them not to be in too great a hurry to get here because it only means that these days of longing to get back to Canada will be longer, I know I was much pleased to leave Canada but I would be much more pleased to be on my way back.

[Page 3]
I get two letters per week from home so I am kept pretty well posted, and the mails have been my regular lately.
I suppose the boy will all be home for Xmas and you will be having a fine time. I hope they appreciate it because they surely won’t spend Xmas next year there. If I am home in two years I shall think I am doing fine. You hear a lot of talk about ending the war

[Page 4]
but don’t look for an end for more than a year yet at the least.
Now auntie don’t let anything I write get into the paper because it may not be healthy for me.
Wishing you all a Very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
I close
With love to all,
