Early Morning

My Own Darling Wife,

  I have just come off

early morning parade & am

writing as I didn't manage to

do so last night. I had left time to

write but several papers &c. came

in & required attention & kept me

busy until nearly midnight.

Most of the men have been missing

again & for two days we had

practically no one for parade.

On Weds. I had a day's trip

to the town & enjoyed the day

although we had to wait

two hours (from 5:30 am to 7:30 am)

in the early morning as a

bus was late. We got back

at 1 am the next day.

Yesterday I got a good strap
