My Own Darling,

  Just a love note before I

go to bed. We are warned for a move

to-morrow but don't know yet whether

we are going or no. The powers that

be appear to think we have had

a long enough rest so back

into the line we go. It will be

into a new area & of course it

might be a "cushy" part of the line

one never knows. A message has

just come on the phone which appears

to confirm the move so perhaps

I shall be out of touch with

a post office again for a short

time. However it is not our turn

to go in first & so it should

be a good few days before we

are actually in touch with 

the Boche again. As far as I know
