a Boche plane brought down this

morning so I suppose that brings

the end of the war a trifle nearer.

There are plenty of optimists about.

I hear many people saying "The war

will be over this year" The war will

end in April" &c.  The bricklayers who were

working in here yesterday were talking

and one said "How long do we go in

for this time?" Twelve days said his

pal." "Oh!" Said the other, then the

war will be over before we have to

go in again. 

Have just noticed my card

from the dinner we had at Brigade

so I'll send it along. Some of the

names you may be able to

read & place but I think most

of them are strangers to you.

I wish I were next on the leave list
