[partial letter – poorly copied and first page missing, lhs cut off – some words interpolated by me…]
I suppose you [will] be pleased to know that I [have been] awarded a Bar to my Military Medal. [I was] recommended for the DCM [but] got the Bar instead. It is [still] something. As the bar is [just] the same as another MM [this] will give the people at home [some]thing to talk about . I suppose [they] have forgotten about me being […] home. At least I hope they have. [Well] this is all at present hoping [to] hear from home soon again. [I hope] Annie and Jimmy and [your]self are still in good health.
Your loving son
