luck on Sgt. Jackson. He was taking Mendel

away on a stretcher after he had been wounded

& lost direction on the way back. They got

to a village thinking it was where our

Aid Post was but had gone too far south.

The Bearers put the stretcher down & went 

into a shed with Jackson to find shelter

for Mendel. A shell came killed

Jackson wounded the two bearers &

left Mendel with only his guide.

Fortunately they all got back safely.

I like Kenneth's letter very much & 

hope he will write again soon.

There doesn't seem much news in this

letter Darling, but the thing I really

want it to contain is the fact that

I love you very very dearly. It will be

just lovely to get back to England to

live with you. - To be your boy again

in reality - to kiss you & fold you

in my arms so that you can

feel that I love you. My thoughts
