My Own Darling Wife,

                            Just a short love note to

say I am fit + well. The Coy is still in 

the front line although we expected to

get into support last night. However it

was found impossible to relieve us and

we are not having too bad a time. Just 

a few minor disadvantages like not being

able to wash + shave often & having to keep

boots on all the twenty-four hours and 

going to bed ? half an hour after

the night before last and was very

pleased to get them. They are waiting

for me when I got back from visiting

my posts about 4 am. We have had

two rainy days which rather spoiled

the show but the rest of the time the

weather has been lovely. I believe the

Division is being taken out for a

rest after we finish here so we may
