My Own Darling Wife,

  It was good to receive 

your letter of the 31st met when I got

back from my tramp round our new 

location last night. Sorry I only got

a card off to you. I shall be sorry to leave

my wood to-night and for the next

few days or so I shall be living in

a trench where it is as well to keep

out of sight during the daylight. We shall

be in the old game again of sleeping by

day & keeping awake at night.

  No, I don't think there is much

chance of my getting away on a course

although I am not so short of officers

now as when I was reduced to one

other than myself, none of them have

had much experience. They are good

fellows but all a bit "shell shy" & I
