My Own Darling,

            I believe the post

corporal is going to try + get

some letters away at  5 pm so

I must send a note as there was

no post yesterday. We started off

at 10 am + were at our new village

soon after 1 pm. I found that

Robertson had got me a most

comfortable billet + that the mens'

quarters were good. We bought a

chicken for dinner + had a good

evening + a good night's rest in 

a comfy bed. 10 am this morning

we were on the move again. It

was drizzling with rain but soon

cleared up + we had a good

march of about twelve miles. We

have now left billets behind
