my next leave is a long way off

for we have such a crowd of

officers now. It is a long long time

since I left you - the worst period

I have had out here, on account of

the changes I expect. Yes our officers

are a very different stamp now a days

but we have quite a lot of good

fellows. Border has been posted to A Coy

& another fellow returned from Hospital

so the mess is somewhat better. I 

have gone to HdQrs again as

second in Command until the

C.O. comes back so that is a change.

Glad Archie wrote to you. I hadn't 

noticed his writing but then we don't

trouble each other very much. Sorry 

his wife has been ill. What a 

nuisance about the house. Still

I expect Alice can soon get things

put right for you. You couldn't 

expect to remember to turn off the

water. Have we ever done so?
