great tonic & we intend to have

football matches, as good a dinner

as possible, a good supply of smokes

and a concert also. It would be 

rather a victory for the Hun if he made

us have a solemn faced Christmas. Being 

sad & solemn is not good either for the

troops or the people at home so I hope

all will have a Merry Xmas & so put 

more determination into their efforts.

  Darling mine I do miss you. I do want

to be with you. Shouldn't I be pleased

to get a chit saying I could go home

for Xmas. Still we can't all be lucky & go

home - some are needed here until the

victory is won & those who are needed will

cheerfully stay, although their hearts may be

with those they love at home. When next

Christmas comes may we have won & be

together again in our home. My thoughts

are ever with you. Tell Kenneth Daddy

sends him love & kisses. XX I 

am all yours Beloved & you

are all mine. Heaps of kisses - a big

hug & all my love.

Your own Hubby
