people at home. The army to a man knows what the

final result will be. Sooner or later Peace will

come and what a welcome it will get. So that I

may get home to you again Beloved I hope our Peace will

come soon but even now I only want a peace that

will be binding on all nations so that war will only

be possible in the very last extremity of the nations. 

Better still if it never comes again. If one were to 

allow ones thoughts to wander in an area like this

fighting would cease to appeal even to a soldier - but

it is the means to the end that we must think about

and not the effects of the things that are past. My

men are in very good form and quite cheerful. Some 

of them have not been on leave for over twelve months

bu they look upon that as part of the war and

accept it with the same calm as the other incidents

of their life in Army.

  My thoughts are ever with you Beloved. I wish I 

were with you to help you to get "straight" but

instead I'll be able to come home and enjoy all

the comforts of a comfortable home. Tell Kenneth Daddy

sends him lots of love & kisses. I love you

Lassie mine & want you & long to be with you.

It is such a long time since that last kiss.

May all good come to you. Heaps of kisses & all 

Love

Your own Hubby
