My Own Darling Wife,

      A real short note this time.

I am just going to ride out on

Sally to reconnoitre an area + I'll

get back in the evening. Ta for

letter received night before last.

I heard last night that I should

probably be sent on a course

but it is not certain as yet.

I have missed the company

Command course but if I get

this one it will probably mean

promotion. You know how I love

the Brigadier so you will smile

when I tell you my name will

be his nomination. We are back

in a wood again but farther from

the line than the last one + in

two or three more days we shall be
