We have really had quite a gay

afternoon. Eight of us had tea in

my dugout including Dean, Fox,

Hart-Davis & the Brigade Intelligence 

Officer. We had any amount of room

so you can tell I have a good

place. The chief dish was that

excellent homemade cake of Alice's

which arrived in the parcel last

night.

  I like the way Kenneth is getting 

more biscuits out of your hand. He 

has a very determined position &

means to succeed.

  Probably the cause for which

one is awakened doesn't matter

very much but the actual fact

does. I believe we are going

back to the wood for four days

after our ten in here & then (if lucky
