Letterhead for Lincolnshire Regiment, 2nd/4th Batt.

20/5/17

My Own Darling,

  Am just going to have tea with

Porter so must write a note here else I cannot

catch the post. We had a Brigade church Parade 

this morning. It was quite a change to see a

lot of men instead of a few in a trench. Last

night we were arranging Brigade Sports and 

I look like having a fair amount of work to do

this next week for I am to supervise the getting

up of the sports in addition to the ordinary work.

It has been a lovely warm sunny day & I enjoyed

riding to parade this morning & over here this afternoon.

It is Sunday but I had a pay parade as well.

There isn't much difference between any of the

days of the week now. Ta for your letter I

received yesterday - must answer it later. I

got one from Lucy this morning - quite a

cheerful epistle. There doesn't seem to be

any war at all. We are almost "far from

the war" & training again just as if we

were in England. I have a good billet only

there is no Marion to greet me when I

come off parade & no Kenneth to play with in
