2 May 1915 – Ted to Ben

02 May

May 2

Dear Ben

Here are your Zoo tickets, I trust they will help you to spend a happy hour or two there. Percy says hang on to his cards & don’t part with them, but show one and write your name in a book, & then you’ll always be able to get into the Royal Pav.

Will you do something for me please? Thanks. I want you to get me from Hugh Rees a cover for ARMY BOOK 153. He has a special kind, the same shape & leather as those little writing blocks you get at Hugh Rees. It has a talc cover on one side for putting a map in. Send it along as soon as you can.

No news here; all well, lively weather, trenches quite comfy, but it is drizzling a bit today-

I hear poor Banks has been killed; I’m most awfully sorry.

Got a Tatler & Bystander today, many thanks.

So long

Lots of love from

Ted

The enclosed cutting made me roar! Show it to Dick.

    Any guess at what the cutting might have been?

    Sadly, I’ve no idea what the cutting was. Presumably something about India if Dick would have been amused by it and he was sending it to Ben.
