My Own Darling Wife,

  We got out of the front

line safely this morning and

I arrived at this camp about

5:30 am. I should have got in

about 3 am but we were 

doing a small show & I had

to stay until it was all over.

We have got a real good

camp in the gardens of a 

ruined village but we shall

only be here a short time

as we are going farther back

for more training. I didn't

manage to get a letter off 

yesterday & there is very little

time before the post goes now.

I turned in about 6 am & had a

good sleep until breakfast

at 11:30. We are enjoying 

a lovely summer evening &

just outside the band is
