to run about most of the day now.

              Did I tell you that

Knox had gone back with "Trench Fever"

same thing as Phillips had. I don't

think there is any danger in it - something

like flu with a touch of malaria. Bodly

+ Border have got it as well. We hope

they will come back to us but like

 Phillip they may get to England. Knox

+ his wife are very troubled about

their boy. According to the first report

of a specialist his lower bowel had

so distended as to displace the rest

of the organs + there was little chance

of an operation being successful. A

later report was much more encouraging

+ they now hope the first was false

altogether. Glad John has got his

second pip. Yes soldiering is very

interesting but not all the time
