 My Own Darling,

           We marched again  to-day

but not far - just enough to

do at one go + to get warmed

up. We got fairly decent shelters

+ soon had a fire going. We

expected to stay two nights but

instead of that we move a

little nearer the front tomorrow

and into the line next

day. If we are lucky we

should get out again on

Boxing Day. The Boche seems

to be preparing for Christmas

but even though he may

get men from the Russian

front he will find many

things to prevent his having

the joy of a victory to

cheer the hearts of the Fatherland
