I received 2 letters from you on  friday Thursday

and thank you very much for them. I was only 

able to scribble those few words in reply I was so

pushed for time, but that was better than nothing

what say you old lady.

  I don't know what they will do with me yet. I 

expect I shall be here for some time yet, and if I

have nothing much to do I will try & get to Aintree

during the week end but will let you know for certain

during the week.

  I have not written to whiskers yet but I shall

have to do so if I can get leave.

  This camp looks very deserted to-day since the

last of the men went this morning. it will be rather

lonely here now they have gone, but I shall have

to think of you old lady & keep the blue devils away.

  What sort of weather are you having in Aintree

it is awful here today, ground covered with snow

this morning & fearfully cold, quite a change after

the lovely weather.

  The poor old Colonel was awfully cut up

when he said good bye, he called the SM  Sergeant Major  & myself
