My Own Darling,

  A short note this time to tell

you of much love. Things seemed to be moving

a bit yesterday but they have slowed up again. Last

night a wire came to say I was to go as second 

in Command to another Battalion - a temporary job

only. I packed up this morning and then the

CO applied for permission to keep me to finish

what he calls "a job of work" that I had started

that will keep me with the battalion four or five

more days and then I don't know what happens - possibly

I go possibly I stay or instead of either I

might get leave. Who knows? I certainly don't.

We are having a fairly quiet time just now and I

am not losing much sleep. Last night it

rained but to-day has been a lovely sunny day

as there is nothing doing I haven't much news

that I can send to you. I love you Darling & I

do want the days to fly away until we are

together again. I know they will fly then.

  My subalterns are quite a merry family and

we are generally very cheerful in the hours between

work. Just at present they are all out so I am

by myself in the dug out writing & thinking of you.

I hope you are having a good time Girlie... It 

seems years & years since you kissed me & I

do want to be kissed & loved again very soon
