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
Your own Hubby
