First page on the left

it would be nice to

foret. several of our

men have been killed

& wounded. Strange to

say or rather not strange

to say I have never

once had the slightest

fear. Snipers have shot at

us & shells & straprel

& continuos gas shells

but I have confidence

that God in answer to

prayers both of myself

and others for me will

bring me safely through

I am putting this in

writing to remind me

& others in after years

of many direct answers


.Second page on the right

to prayer that I myself

have had. I have not had

a shave since last Saturday

and this morning I

went out to a shell

hole under fire and

had a wash in

dirty warter, felt

quite refreshed. I have

been on ration fatigue

every night. This is far

more dangerous than being

in the trenches and I

have not had one hours

sleep the whole time

but I dont even feel

sleepy. I am wondering

what to day will

bring. It is somewhere
