first class Company, good officers, a decent CO &

many friends in the Battalion. The feeling that other 

fellow gave me of being an outsider has gone

altogether and I know that when I go from the 

Battalion - if I do go - there will be many who will

be sorry that I am going. I too shall be sorry but

that seems to be the only way to get on & I do

want to do that. What a lot about myself. Now

for a few words about you. I see lots of advertisements

in the paper & I often wonder if you have got

all you want in the dress line &c. You see

Spring is coming quickly now & that is one of the 

special times for new clothes even in war time.

You will get what you require won't you

Sweetheart? I love you darling & am all

yours. May that leave soon arrive for I do want

to feel your arms round me again & to feel your

lips pressed against mine. I want to sit down & look

at you & feast my eyes upon your loveliness. May all

good come to you & all happiness wait upon you

Beloved mine. 

  Heaps of kisses - one specially big and

all my love.

Your own Hubby

Harold
