My Own Darling Wife,

  Last night I was lucky to

discover a bed in the village + so got

away from our hut. I suppose really

I ought to have stuck to the hut to

get hardened - but I thought I might

as well be comfy as long as I could.

  We are not having too bad a

time and are not moving until Monday.

After our first day's march I think we

shall be at Brigade Reserve for

two days before taking over our share

of the front line. My Company with

two others will be in the front line +

support trenches, which are at present

half full of either mud or water. Four

or five days may however make a

wonderful difference + neither the mind

nor the water is liable to worry us until

we actually get to them. I have not

had a letter yet but expect to get a
