18 January 1916 – Richard to Gertrude

18 Jan


Tuesday 18th.

Shoals of letters I suppose you’ll
get by this mail. It leaves today.


Dear Mother.

Still stuck here & likely to be as far as I can see. We are trying to move to Suez. All our equipment is on the quay but we cannot get a transport train to move it down. No letters have arrived, but perhaps they may come before we leave Egypt. It’s nice here, warm & sun shining. June is very fit & I bought her a collar & some ribbon yesterday. All shopping is done in French. Would you please send me a round collar for her, I am sure I cannot get one out East. Write next to c/o Cox & Co. Bombay to be called for. That’s the safest I fancy.

I see Ted was here on the 11th & I have written to him. Everything in an awful muddle. Best love to all.

Yr loving Dick
