15 January 1916 – Richard to Gertrude

15 Jan

Saturday 15.


Dear Mother.

Tomorrow we should be in Alex. Rotten voyage, dull & rough. I wonder if I shall see Ted, but I expect he will have gone by now.

I will cable you when we arrive, if I can afford it!

The dog is very fit & very popular on board. I call her “June”.

I hope my money matters have worked out alright & that there was enough at Coxs.

Best love to all, I’ll let you know when I can our ultimate destination.

Yr loving son Richard.


After spending 1915 working in the Indian military hospital in Bournemouth, Richard was on his way to a new posting.
