My Own Darling

                 Once more I am writing

to you from the depths of a deep

dugout which the Boche once upon

a time made for himself. It is very

pleasing to remember that a lot of the

hard work he put in has resulted in

our greater comfort. May he continue the

good work until the end of the war.

Up to the present we have had a

pretty quiet time. Our posts are so

near the Boche that he could not

shell us heavily without withdrawing

his own men. That of course does not

prevent us receiving the smaller attention

of bullets , pineapples, whizbangs

potato mashers and other such kidney.

We always pay back with interest

as it is the good payers that receive
