My Own Darling Marion,

  We are waiting until 

it is dark enough to start 

for our new position. That is

I mean all my arrangements

are completed & we have an 

hour or two before we can

move off. I don't think that we

are in a bad position - it is

just to the left of the last

trenches we were in.

  Unfortunately it is another

rainy day and all the land

round here appears to be clay so

I am afraid that in a few hours 

time I should scarcely be

presentable were I to walk into

the drawing room. I have been

getting off one or two letters I owed

to Ma, Lills, & some of my men

who are in England. I believe 

we shall have a short tour of duty
