My Own Darling Wife

             I expect to be going a little

further back into Support to-night +

as there is an interval now before the

other unit comes in I am trying to

write to you. we expected to go

back last night but for some reason

we were ordered to stay an extra

twenty four hours. It has made our

turn seem rather long. We have

had a very quiet time taking

all things in to consideration + a

frost came + dried the trenches

to make things better for us

It is hard  to realise that today

is Sunday but the weather

during the day has been

delightfully spring like . All

my officers are fit + well if

you except dugout colds.
