My Own Darling Wife

  We are having a day's 

rest today after two days marching.

We did not stay very long in the

rest camp & marched out just before

dark to return. We averaged a little

over walking pace in the train & were

about seven hours behind our time

in arriving at a place where it

was arranged for us to draw hot

water for making tea. We had

expected to spend another night in

the train but instead of that we

arrived at our railhead in the

afternoon. We marched about three

miles to Billet. I got a bed

& had a good night's rest.

My cold had developed rather 

too much & I was feeling very

washy, even after sleeping most of

the way in the train. Next day
