c

row was tremendous. I lay on a ridge

in the pouring rain - shells bursting around

+ bullets whistling just above us. You can

guess how small I made myself. I was

very thankful when that day's work ended.

The game was very exciting + one did

not realise the danger until

afterwards + then of course it couldn't 

worry one.

           There is no sign yet of that

wash, clean clothes + a rest but we

are all fit + I guess we shall

enjoy the things better for waiting longer.

Monson is away on a course, Harvey got

a slight shrapnell wound in his forehead

+ has left us for a time. The C.O. is better

but not really fit as yet. If we get

some warm weather soon it will

be very welcome - it is too cold at

night in the open at present.

          I hope you will have a good

time when you get to Grantham. Please

remember me to all the people I ought
