a good rest now myself but the

men are not. You can tell I am a good

way back when I am living in a tent.

Have had one or two heavy thunder

showers but the weather is really quite

good. Expect we shall have training

to do now & we are going to try & run

off sports &c as well. I saw

Howard last night & he told me Sheppard

had gone sick with shell shock. 

A big shell knocked in his dug out &

when he crawled out of the ruins

another came & bowled him over but

without wounding him. I hear Knox

is in England but that he is getting

on all right. I had a letter from Ma

& Lills the other night - it is good of

them to write. I really ought to

address this to Grantham I suppose

if you are actually going on Friday.
