the sun cannot shine into

This letter is scrappy Lassie but I have

been writing in the intervals between work

I have had several visitors in some

of whom I have taken out to visit

the line. I started work at 3.30 am

this morning had a sleep again from

4.30 to 5.30. The CO come round at

7.15 + we went all round the place

to see if it were defended properly.

That took us over two hours and

since then I have been doing odd

jobs. Think I shall turn in for a

sleep about 8.30 or else I may  get

tired. I love you Sweetheart mine

All my thoughts come to you + I 

want to as well. May all happiness

wait upon you. I hope you are

having a good time in Grantham

and not finding the food question
