My Own Darling Wife

            We leave here early tomorrow

for our next halting place and after one

night there move into the line. I have had

a lazy day today - stayed in my comfortable

bed until mid day - just so that I shall

be able to remember what a bed is like.

To morrow night I shall spend in a

dug out which I trust will be deep 

enough to keep out the shells if the

Huns be silly enough to send them

there. I got a short note from Dring

tonight posted on the 28th but none

of yours have turned up yet. Nearly

all of us are in the same plight

I hope you have received some of

mine before this else you will

have been worried a bit.

            Hope you are both keeping

A1 and finding plenty to do

There was a long list of "mentioned"
