a good long time. Our games are
better than his, our men are
better & our supplies of food
& ammunition are infinitely superior.
All our men are well fed & we
pass over about 20 shells to his
one. How tired of the shells the
Boche infantry must get. Still if
it is only a question of fighting
Kenneth will be at school before
the war is over so we'll wish
the Boche all sorts of nasty
things at home.
Enough of war - for the Padre
says it will be all over by
Christmas & I hear "John Bull"
has ordered his Christmas Dinner
as a peace celebration.
Give my love to everyone &
tell them I am very fit & well.
