Scuttlebutt


Wednesday 29 March 1944, 1815 o'clock
Hello Honey,
     Just finished a hot game of volleyball and now I'm going back to the B.O.Q. for a quiet evening in.
     Nothing much to say since I wrote but a few hours ago. Rumor still has it that six officers are due to arrive and the Exec thinks we may go on a double shift.  We hope that is true for it will give a fellow enough time during the day to attend to personal matters off the base.  Another rumor is that our whole department is going to move over to Camp Elliot. As far as we're concerned that wouldn't make any difference. However all this is "scuttlebutt" so we'll just have to wait and see.
     Love to my girls and a big XX to you.
Your lover,
Gil
