It seems a long time since I

was with you Darling - longer than

ever now. I hope I get on that

course so that I shall soon see

you again.

  If you go into the town Lassie you

might see if you can get me a decent

diary - a small one for my pocket but

with a page or half page for each day.

I don't think I want anything else

- except a pipe. I broke those two I

got but mended them & they don't 

look quite so nice although they

are smokeable. 

  I think the C.O. has been having

rather a bad time for he has had

his leg operated upon & a piece of

bad bone taken out. I think I 

told you the Padre was wounded

& on his way to England. Dean

distinguished himself the other day

& received the hanks of the Divisional

Commander. 'A' Company has been

collecting a few trophies in the

shape of Boche prisoners.

  It was lovely to read the

love message at the end of

your letter. I am indeed 

fortunate among men to have
