My Own Darling Wife,

  Many thanks for 32 & 33

received. I am sorry that we are

disappointed but cheer up Darling

there are many years to go yet. I wish

I had been with you but I mustjust

write & tell you I love you instead.

You were right in your opening

paragraph and the battalion has

had a pretty warm time. CO & 

Fox are wounded. CO has a broken

leg & Fox a slight wound in

the side of his head. Both 

will most probably go on

all right. I cannot tell you 

what we have done but you'll

read about some of it in 

the papers. I hate being detailed

away from the Bn but there

was no escape. Of course war

means casualties & I don't

think we are above the average.

You did well to write to
