I received your cake I don’t think Gladys
Dear Mar & Pa
I received Gladys little parcel which just came at the right time. I am still alive and kicking. We have moved again twice since last I sent a letter but I don’t suppose we shall shift again as I don’t think you will hear from me for about 10 days at least by letter.
I could do with a good washerwoman and a darner at times but manage to knock along alright. We had 3 taubes over us yday and can see the star lights which they fire up at night which look very pretty. We can also hear the machine guns & rifles too sometimes. The flies out here are a perfect nuisance great swarms all over the place. I am in the best of health only for fly and nat bites.
I had a letter from Geo & Will the other day. I see they have made Geo into a Glorified Copper. When are we going to have these shells Lloyd Geo speaks so much about and an army of aeroplanes eh. They seem to be taking a census I see. I am quite comfortable here. Remember me to any enquiring friend. What about taking up a war loan. If Geo gets his Com you can do as you think fit with my overplus. I suppose I shall be finding Gladys with her hair up and a big dog in the passage. Glad to hear you are all well. When are you going on holidays this year? Will it be Blackpool? I suppose you will be having Uncle Will up there before long. Going for a swim in the canal after tea so Bye Bye Fred
