No 42                           19/1/18

My Own Darling,

                   No 38 arrived safely to-day

+ cheered me up muchly. Not that I 

was feeling very down hearted but I 

wanted a word from you. To day we had

a Brigade run. It was an absurd idea

for practically every man was made

to turn out for an eight mile run

and for a competition a time limit

was fixed of an hour + twenty minutes.

I turned out - because I didn't like to

get out of the show. I did my best to

get the old crocks on but it was

beyond their powers + so far the last

two miles I trotted off + left them.

I haven't heard the full results yet

but a very small proportion of the

men got in in the 80 min. I expect

I shall be frightfully stiff in the morning
