Many thanks for your letter – Dreda & Jane seem to have enjoyed themselves very much at Bognor. I heard from Dreda while she was there. I must write to her in a minute.
Rotten weather we are having now – all rain & quite cold – This afternoon we ran off some heats of our sports – pouring all the time – I won my 100 yds heat & tomorrow is our ½ mile – an awful track, all long grass-
I’ve made friends with our Chaplain’s kids – who are up here- I went to tea there this afternoon & thoroughly enjoyed myself.
Isn’t the news lovely – we’ve just got our evening papers & I see they say 120,000 Germans are accounted for, in some way or another – I wonder when our casualty lists will be out?
Is it any use having my sea-chest sent home – it will cost 15/- apparently to send to Guildford, and if I store it – it costs 4d a week – what do you think – it’s mostly full of pictures & clothes I don’t want at present.
Mr Tyers was married to-day – he’s that fellow who came to see you with his fiancée – & brought my cigarette Box-
Slight old acquaintance- Mrs Maturin – eh? – Course I have’nt the slightest idea what she is like.
My cold has quite gone now thank you & I’m feeling ever so fit again.
There is no more news – very best love to you all from
Your ever loving son
