My Own Darling Wife,

  I have arrived safely

back to the same old camp.

Got here in time for lunch

yesterday. Went to a lecture

in the afternoon & played 

football in the evening - rather

a strenuous start wasn't it.

  Everyone seems very 

pleased to see me back

again. The old man has 

been doing some lovely 

straffs, but without much

hurt to anyone except himself. 

There is nothing about the

course yet. 

  I had quite a good

journey - was at Victoria an 

hour before the train was

due to start & was captured

by the RTO & sent as 6C
