B Company

13th Battalion

4th Brigade

Heliopolis

Egypt

March 14th 1915

Dear Mother & Father,

Just a few lines to let you

know I am quite well and trust you are both in

good health . How are all at home I hope

all are well. Tell all the friends I was

asking for them. How is Bill Nicholl say

I was asking for him and hope he is quite

strong.

             Well we are having lots of work to do at

present as we are at the end of our training period.

We expect to leave here in a few days for

somewhere. We are not sure where that is but

we expect it is the Dardenelles or some place

near Constantinople. I don't mind as it will

be a change from all the training we have done

for the past six months.

Tess sent me your letter dated Nov. 14th
