My Own Darling Wife.

We have just been inspected by

our new Divisional General and I think

we shall get a good report, for the men

turned out very well & he said that he

was pleased with them . We have had a

couple of cleaning parades & you can

imagine what a lot of cleaning things

took for they have not had a chance of

really getting the mud off since we

left our last rest camp. The weather

continues to the good to us, blue sky &

sunshine is putting new life into

us all and when we go into the

line again on Saturday we shall have

had a real good rest. Let me see I did

thank you for the parcel containing

Lill's excellent cake - the oat cakes

potted meat tongue &c. didn't I? The

contents have been most acceptable

& help us to "do ourselves well"
