paper Sweetheart unless there is something

special in. We ought to get them out

here + as I have been on the war path

all right. Walter has not got back to

us yet. Sorry my cigarettes have now

no cards in them. They are much

cheaper than at home though. Sorry

can't say anything about casualties

except that so far we have been

very lucky. Glad you like the

V.A.D. Sorry for Lills + the

Kiddies. It is after midnight so

think I must roll up in my one 

blanket. All my thoughts come

to you my Beloved. Tell Kenneth
