My Own Darling Wife,

I am having rather long hours

today. Morning, afternoon + "after tea"

but doing nothing very strenuous.

This evening the CO & I are going

to dine with a man at Corps

HdQrts so we ought to get

a good dinner. We are still

having a good time with lots

of the luxuries of civilisation

& we shall not be moving for

a few days yet. At least we

think not.

  I haven't any news Lassie

This is just to say I love you

+ miss you such a lot. How

long the time seems since I

have been back compared with

the length of my leave! I hope
