My Own Darling Wife,

  Many thanks for your letter of

the 16th which I received this afternoon.

By the way our address is just the

name of the Regt without the Brigade or

the Division then BEF France. I had

better say first of all that I am real fit

& well and now at 10:15 pm I am writing

to you safely tucked up in bed. It is

the first since we went forward that I

have had my clothes off & you can guess

I appreciate it. We are in rest billets

in huts in the middle of a wood. It

would be an ideal spot in the late

spring or summer but with the present

state of the thermometer there is much to

be desired. However it is much better

than our last abode so we are thankful

& the men are singing. We had rather

a tough march back - a cold wind +

rain did not improve matters. We were
