10 January 1915 – Richard to Gertrude

10 Jan

Avonmouth, Bristol 10th

Dear Mother.

I’ve just wired you to say I have arrived safe in England. Arrived today after an awful voyage in the Bay. The Dilwara was with us, tell Ben the way she rolled was awful, I hope Ben had a better time than that.

I’ve just been to see Kathleen, so nice being in England again & seeing someone I knew, talk about Jane & everyone. Tomorrow we go on to Brighton I believe, where we are to have our hospital & I’ll let you know about things.

So nice being home again in spite of all this awful war. I’ve seen no casualty lists lately & I hope everyone is safe. I’ll try & post this here tomorrow.

Best love to all

Yr loving son
