We came to this city of Swindon from Bet worth. It took us 8 hours to get there by train on our way iys we had to change train station in London. We rode through on 6 I trucks. Swindon is a very nice place, its droub the size of phoenipiville. We were put ego in private homes in swindon. I’ve and I where lucky with an elderly couple by the name of puyne. We had a room and a nice safe double bed. It was the first good sleep and had since I came into the army. They always gave up a streaming hot cup of tea in the morning and at night before going to bed. Swindon was full of flat, but it never bothered me. Most of the boys had it steady. AL, I ve and I spent most of our time at the black house pub. Meet some nice Englishmen there. Most of all I meet a her wood, his wife and sox. I’ll never forget these people for the swell way.
