Handwritten message on reverse reads:
I'm posting this at Port Said, just to let you know, we're "full of
life" - and so far have had a very pleasant voyage. There's a gale
blowing this morning but I rather enjoy it! The weather has been
wonderfully kind, sea calm the whole way. We went to Aden - Mallah (?)
is very steady and most comfortable. I sent old Dave an Ocean Letter, he
will have received it last Monday, so knows by now we're O.K. Can't
realise we're coming Home. Yet! Longing to see You again - keep warm,
don't stand about at the station waiting for us! Best love. S.
