My Own Darling,

  Many thanks for your No 39

just received (7pm) it took a little longer

than No 40 didn't it. I also got a note from

Archie too. He got his commission all right & 

has gone back to the corps he was in before.

We are still resting & refitting. Parade for

a few hours a day but there is not a great

deal for me to do except to try & make

things comfortable for the men. This morning

it was nice & bright & sunny. I had a good

ride round on Sally to look out

training grounds. Soon after lunch it

began to rain & as it has poured down

ever since, I have done nothing but

office work & thank goodness we have got

a good roof to our house. I am glad

to hear you are having a good time

with Annie & Herb & also that

Kenneth & Joan are enjoying life.

I have had no further news from 

the CO &c. but no news we count

as good news out here. Yesterday
