and my "pinching party" found

five chairs in the village. We

converted a Boche gun pit into 

a mess room and my bed

room is deep down in the

ground, down umpteen steps,

& perfectly safe. We found it

had a nice wooden floor when

we got rid of the rubbish. Four

of us sleep there & two other

in a smaller place. Owing to

the moves we have done letters

are delayed but they may

turn up to-day. I am very

well & going strong though

I don't like commanding A Coy

after being so long away. None

of the officers & very few of the

NCO's are the same as I had
