I am pleased to say that

to-day I feel really A1

again. Yesterday afternoon

Knox, Hooper & I rode into

the town (not much of a 

place) & had tea at the

E F C Officers Club. I enjoyed

the ride this morning. It

is a change for us to

be in a cultivated area

after our long spell where

no one lives & nothing

grows. Well Sweetheart

mine I don't think I hurried

back to duty though I 

got back as soon as I 

could. I was improving so

quickly that I knew I should

get on just as well with the

Bn as away from it. I too

Lassie would much rather keep

fit & well instead of missing

duty by being sick. I think

right side

our new area is not a 

"Trench Fever one" so probably I 

shall miss any repeat - hope

so anyhow. I mounted the

crowns yesterday & took down

the pips. It seems probable

that Phillips won't get

back & Dean will be away 

another six weeks or so.

  Ta very much Sweetheart but

I think those clothes will 

last very nicely until

the cold weather comes again

& I don't know of anything else

I want just yet. Thompson's

letter didn't worry me very

much Darling. Hope the

business won't worry you

either. Kenneth is a caution

& has a splendid memory.

Tell him Daddy sends lots

of love & kisses X X X X X X
