at night when the Boche cannot

see the smoke. I am also the

fortunate possessor of three

chairs which came out of the

wreck of a farm. There is no

village near to attract the

Boche shells so he has to

scatter them over the country.

I suppose his gunners are 

full of hope when they fire

as they cannot watch their

effects they cannot get very 

disappointed. We are just

having a summer shower & 

lay the dust only I don't 

think it will be quite long 

enough for that to lay

dust to mud. One is only a

nuisance & the other is beyond 

words. Had a visit from the

CO so had to sit talking for

a time :

Give my love to  all at home
