continually shelling, as they think some of our

batteries are concealed on it. Of course we are

pretty safe but it's nice to see the shells bursting

all around. The other day we were having a

game of cards when a shrapnel bullet came down

within a couple of inches of my knee.

Dear Mother you mentioned in your letter that

if I wanted anything, you would send it to me.

Well I would be very thankful for some cigarettes

also a some notepaper and envelopes as both are

very scarce here. 

I have not any more news at present so I will

conclude with best, love to all

From your loving son

Tom
