Text of Letter


I am just out for a breather before going on night duty.  I heard from Cecil today – will send you his letter another time.  He has been given a commission in the 1st battalion London Scots and is coming home on leave soon to get his kit.  I do hope I shall see him.  He says he is very fit and well indeed.

I shall be on day duty again 9 am on Sunday so shall not get much sleep!

Love from
