My Own Darling Wife

         It is 3 30 pm + part of our resting

time so think I will write to you. I spent

last night wondering over the counter

calling on Hall, Clark + Hooper in their

respective trenches as my men (most of

them) gone out on small working parties.

We are all having quite a good time in

spite of the lack of the luxuries of

civilisation and the large amount of

addition work caused by the rain. I was

fortunate enough to be under shelter last

night when the rain was heavy so did

not get wet. Our trenches "caught 

it badly again" but they were not

nearly as bad as when we took them

over thanks to the new drains we

had made. An hours work this

morning got rid of most of the water

+ mud + the sun has been giving
