My Own Darling,

             I haven't written much

lately but "moving time" is always a 

bad one for letters. I was delighted to

receive your numbered 55, 56 + 57 the

day before yesterday and No 58 today

and will try to answer them. Yesterday

we marched off at 10 am + reached 

this camp after a five mile march.

We are staying here to-day + to-morrow

morning we move on into the reserve

area where I believe we sit tight for

six days + then relieve one of our

other Bns in the line. Yesterday it

was definitely settled that Dean was

to be second in command so there is

no chance for me for some time. Must

keep smiling though + be like

Macawber in one respect. I am sitting

on a long by a stove in a Nissen Hut
