this so I am really at ease. Tea

is just coming up + after tea

we are playing the officers

of another Battalion. Wonder

if I shall be stiff. My

costume to-day - can hardly

call it a uniform - consists of

shirt all open at the front.

breeches, stocking puttees, socks

+ boots. I had to put on a

belt, collar & the cap +

gas mask for parade. Pity

I haven't a white dress or I

would wear that. The weather

is delightful + none of us

really mind the heat. I

ran across some of the men

we sent out on that draft

from Tralee last night

+ also one of my old Sergts

who is now an officer.

  Well Sweetheart I am going
