My Own Darling Wife,

  Many thanks for the parcel

which I received safely last night. The

last two mails have been great for parcels

and we have done ourselves very well

indeed. We expected to go to rest

Billets but the Boche seems to require

us in attendance and so we shall get

our rest later. I am afraid my letters

will arrive in batches for I hear there

is difficulty in getting them away from

here. When we get to Berlin it will

be different but in these resting places

en route communications are not so

good. We have had a lovely spring

day to-day & I enjoyed a walk or

two on top. When we were in the

line that was impossible so we

enjoy it the more now. My men

who were off duty have been

basking in the sun & should feel

much better for it. Certainly they
