casualties were caused. Several of our

chargers were killed and Sally was

slightly wounded. We hope to keep 

her with us as I don't want to

lose her & I might if she went

to Hospital. We don't get very

much news but we are all

keeping fit & cheerful. Perhaps we

may be due for a few days rest

soon and they will be most

welcome - only I hope we get to

a decent place where there are

some warm billets & beds. Lunch

out of doors is very pleasant in

the summer time but not when

the ground is covered with a white

frost. The Boche is getting quite

above himself these days but he

does get some 'orrid shocks
