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
