Handwritten message on reverse reads:
Dearest 19.ii.'31
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.

Addressed to:
Mrs M. Mitchell, c/o Mrs Bullett,44 Spring Road, Kempston, Bedford, England.

Readdressed to:
c/o Mrs Hopcraft, "Newby", Callow Hill, Virginia Water, Surrey.
