are in a big hut here. We have seven

in one part divided by a canvas screen

from another part where the rest sleep

& at the other end is a mess room.  My

bed is a separate affair - the usual

wire netting thing which is very comfy

Some of the beds are made in sets of

four or six on one frame, but we have

no double deckers. We have had a few

strange experiences but little danger as

we are in part of the long front from

which the Boche The German Army has  retired. I expect you

know more about that than we do for

we rely on the newspapers information

except for our own immediate district

Events appear to be very strange & very

interesting but I guess we'll know

what the Boche means in the course

of the next few weeks. He is not much
