Your #55 received. I am going to do some flying for R.A.F. before going over there.

I climbed Ben Lomond and returned by boat to Balloch, snow storm on Ben. Visited A. & W. Henderson’s ship yard and Mr. Weir at Glasgow. Was telegraphed for. Life is getting to the real thing now and I am muchly tickled. Love


The Glasgow ship building firm D. & W. Henderson was on the west bank of the River Kelvin near where it joins the Clyde.381 Parr here and in the following letter (May 4, 1918), writes “A. & W. Henderson.” Possibly this is an error or perhaps Parr is using an interim name for the firm for which I have not found documentation.

Parr mentioned encountering Mr. Weir at Sorn Castle in his letter of April 21, 1918.
