although we had a shower during this

morning's parade. The general came round

to have a look at us  + seemed fairly

pleased at what he saw. This afternoon

I had a good long ride on Sally - partly

on duty but mostly for pleasure.

When I got back I had a good bath 

+ change. My two subs had gone out

working so I set +  waded through

a huge batch of letters that were in

the censored. It gets very monotonous

when one has done thirty or forty

but it's a job that must be done 

or else the people at home would

grumble. Major Dean has just

come in + requires my attention

so I am going to stop now

send this off by post as a 

first installment & wire a letter 

later on.

          Lots of kisses + all love

My darling

                 Your own Hubby

                               Harold
