B

long ago as the 7th Feb. I have not

had a letter yet but there may be

some for me to-night. I wonder

whether you have received any from

me yet. I have found a bed in the

village + it will be more comfy than

the hut + not very far from the men

I think it is a sound plan to be as

comfortable as one can, for a little

farther on all the houses have been

knocked about so much that everyone

must sleep in dug outs. None of

our officers show signs of having had

enough yet but then we have not

had as bad a time as last year yet

we get most of our news via Englad

so it is fairly old by the time we are

able to read it. Our horses stood the 

journey worst but it did not seem to

affect Sally at all. I saw her this morning

& she sort of snorted at me as much as to 

say this is not "arf bad." Half bad.  Well, Darling

all my thoughts come to you. Kiss Kenneth

for me. May all happiness wait upon

you. All love & heaps of kisses

  Your own Hubby
