My Own Darling,

       I have just been

warned for a Court of Inquiry at

Bde Hd Qrs at 5:15 so I  must write my

letter before the postman brings yours.

I ended my letter in a hurry last

night so did not finish answering.

We had a sort of final dinner for

this "rest" last night + had a

very cheerful evening. To-day we

have had to work in our Billet

owing to the rain + to-morrow we

march off. It will be some time before

we actually get into the front line

I think but we shall be getting

nearer. Things are still unsettled but

I expect I shall be in command of

the company when we get into the line

+ not second in command. Must keep
