My Own Darling Wife,

  Just a short note this time

to say that we have finished our rest

for a time & are moving forward to do

a little more work. We all feel much

better for the change of living in huts

instead of in holes in the

ground. The weather seems more

promising, although we had snow

yesterday, and the sun has a 

good warming power during the day.

  I hope you are all keeping fit &

well & enjoying life. I have no

news cause I can't write about

the war & our billets are not

too exciting. One sleeps so long.

I had dinner with Howard &

Sheppard last night & found them

both enjoying the war. They have a

little hut cut into the side of

a bank & were very cosy. Charles

Harvey has rejoined us as he is

now considered by the powers that

be to be thoroughly acquainted with
