sick by the dozen. I like my work

well enough but I don't like the new

order. I object to being held up as an

example by a new-comer & pointed out

as the only officer who knows his

job. I ought to know more than

the others for I have done from four

to forty times the service they have.

Still they say everything comes to

those that wait. I am waiting a few

more days for that course & then

I am going to look after myself. Dean

has put in for a job that I don't 

think he has much chance for. It would

be amusing if we both went.

  I am very comfortable at present.

The Boche is very quiet. I have a

deep dug out with wire bed, table

chair &c but no fire. Still it is 

pretty warm. My men are all

comfortably housed & we are all

cheerful. The rumour about being

out of the line for Xmas grows in

strength & may even materialise but

I'm not too hopeful yet. 

  Tell Kenneth that Daddy

sends him lots of love & kisses
