I received your gift a short while ago and, while it still was a while before Christmas, I couldn’t resist the temptation to open it. I can assure you that the box was very much appreciated.
It has been sometime since I last wrote to you. I have been one of the fortunate group in that I now have a wife. I still keep in contact with a few of the old Bryant men. Chubby Oakes ’41 is still in England, as far as I know, while Gordon Mieklejohn ’42 is on the West Coast.
Occasionally, I hear of other Bryant men but due to the constant transfers in the service it is hard to keep in contact with any of them.
Again I want to thank you for the remembrance. I hope that sometime I can get down and express my thanks in person.
