3 March 1916 – Richard to Gertrude

03 Mar



March 3.


Dear Mother.

I suppose you fancy I’m dotty. All those cables. But at least that F.A. stunt was washed out, so I had to come on here. So go on writing Cox Bombay. Only that waterproof has arrived. No boots or distemper pills. June is a dear, tell Ben frightfully fond of me & can beg perfectly now!

It’s so hot now, but I am being homesick & would prefer to be at home. Ted will be coming out soon. We are due in Bombay tomorrow, & we’ve heard no news since we left Egypt, so goodness knows what may have happened, for all we know peace may be declared.

I hope there’ll be some letters for me at Cox in spite of all the muddles.

Best love to all

yr loving son
