themselves & they certainly missing

a better time in rest missing

in the line. I am not missing

that officers do. The risks

run are less but there is

work to be done & the spirit of

adventure is missing. I expect

it is due to our national pride 

that we are more pleased with

the uncertain than we are with 

the sure knowledge that 

parades or other fixtures are

waiting for one on the missing

  I cannot tell exactly when I 

shall be home but I have just

reckoned that I may be with

you as soon as this letter is.

  It will be lovely to see you

& Kenneth again after such

a long absence. So lovely that

it is impossible to express in
