Dear Father 

       I Left Leeds for York with about 60 Recruits by the 1-15

Train + had some Tea at the Buffet Bar York Station + then

went to Fulfrid Barracks to report and they had us standing

about till 6.30 pm. before we could go out without getting

any tea so when we went out we where very hungry + went

to the YMCA for something to eat + then back to Barracks

for 9-30 pm Bed & wood 4 Blankets + Sleep in your pants

+ stocking or be starved  Rise + breakfast + slice of bread 1"

thick + some potatoes mashed Cold. + washing up water

to drink you can excuse all this by the number  of chaps

who where coming daily at all hours

Then we had to wait about untill our name was called

again loitering about all day not Knowing what to do 

whether you had to go away that day or not I can

tell you that it is harder than working 9 1/2 hrs because

you do not get 1/4 enough to eat. Tuesday was nearly the same

coceep that when we left we got some Rations which consisted of 2

pieces of bread as hard as steel + Bully Beef Bread about 2"
