My Own Darling Marion,

  We are still enjoying the 

most perfect weather. Blue sky and

sunshine and nothing to disturb us.

The planes buzz about in the sky

with the pretty puffs of cotton wool

all round them. The Boche now

& again spoil the picture effect by

using shells which burst into 

black smoke instead of white. I had

a walk yesterday & had a look at the 

Hindenberg Line about which you

read so much in the paper. It

looks like being a tough to crack

but of course one cannot tell

how it will go when the crackers

get to work. It is still a few

yards away from us and if the

sun keeps shining I guess we

shall be warm when we get

into trenches & dug outs (which don't

exist at present) just in front of his wire
