July 17th 1915

Dear Mother & Father,

                                         I have received some

letters & P.C. lately, and I am glad to hear that

all are quite well. I am in the best of form

and am back again at the front. How is Willie,

I suppose he is a big boy now. Tell him I will get a

''Jack Johnson'' and send it home to him. Also Maggie

Kit and Mick I hope they are all in the best of health.

How is Bill Nicholl remember me to him also all

the family.

The weather is very warm here, but as

we are near the water we get a nice sea breeze at

times. We also go for a swim some evenings just

as it gets dark because it is rather dangerous in

the daytime as you might get a bullet or shrapnel.

There is lots of shrapnel going every day. There

is a very high ridge quite near us, which the Turks are
