1 September 1916 – Richard to Gertrude

01 Sep


Sept 1st


Dear Mother.

Sorry for such a hurried note last week, but I thought I was off. There apparently has been some difficulty about transport & I am standing fast & hope to be off soon. I have orders to report at Marseilles & know no more. Anyhow, it may mean a lot of leave later on, & perhaps, if I do ever get to Marseilles (you never know till you’ve actually started) I can get across & see you all, spurs & everything complete. Poor Ben it is dreadful for her, I do hope she is better.

I am glad Topher is all right. Nuisance about my dress clothes. I’ll have to have them sent back now.

Harold has arrived & has been quite a success.

I am playing cricket today & must rush off.

I hear I may sail on the 13th.

Best love to all

yr loving son
