pleased to receive. (No 43) No the Scott 

I mentioned is a youngster from

Barkstone near Grantham. I think

that with a bit of luck I may

manage to get leave before long

but of course I am not quite

certain. Kenneth must have kissed

me last night then for I have

acquired a slight cold. Hope it

will not develop very much for

I can so easily do without it.

I think I last wrote on the 11th. On

the next day we set off in very

showery weather & marched about

eight miles. Soon after we arrived

the rain simply pelted down but

fortunately all the men were soon

under cover. The Officers were not

quite so well off at this village

& some had to sleep on the floor.
