Pte Pilgrim’s letter home 16 Aug 15

August 16th 1915

 

 

Dear Mum,

 

I am just writing this while I have nothing to do, I am getting on fine, will you send me some stamps as this is the last one I have got because it is too far to go tonight so don’t forget to tell Ethel I can’t write until you send me some.  We have to play football of a night in camp be in bed by ¼ 10 pm of a night.  I think I would rather be at Ilford but still I am enjoying it alright.

We have plenty of stew for dinner no custard and plums and say you don’t want them don’t forget to tell Ethel to write if I don’t get my stamps for a day or two I shall make up for it when I get them.

Well I think this is all now with love Bert.

P.S. give my love to Dad Nell & Ethel xxxxxxxxxx
