My own Darling,

  Sorry I didn't get a letter

off yesterday. I spent the morning on

the range & had a good ride there on

Sally. In the afternoon we had a

very exciting football match. 'A' Coy

played 'C' the only  team we hadn't

beaten & we won by two goals to one

As soon as the match was over

I had to ride four miles to a lecture.

I got back in time for dinner &

about half way through that meal

a message came to say that the CO

wanted to see me after dinner. We

worked until 11 pm. question of

posting NCO's & officers & sending

away the surplus. You see I had

a good long day although not a

very strenuous one. This morning
