Dear Mrs Ward

  I now write these

few lines to you thanking you

for your great Kindness in sending

the parcel it was a great supprise

to me but at the same time it

was very thankful I must tell

you the cake also the other things

was simply lovely. We are having

quite a nice romance out here

but still it is not so good as

being in dear old Blighty

but some one must be out

here to help to defend our

own country no doubt Major

Ward has told you how lucky

I have been in getting a leave

which was very much appreciated

I had quite a good time but

the the coming back was awful

but I have got settled down

the funny thing about my leave
