Reply to “C” Company 12th Bat. Essex Regt

Stationed at Dovercourt


July 4th 1916


Dear Father


As you see by the above address we are still at Dovercourt, I don’t know when we are going but I expect it will be all in a hurry when we do start. If I could find out for certain that we should be here for a little time I would try for a pass this week but I don’t think there is any chance of getting it.

How did you enjoy yourself at Farnham I hope they are all well?

I should be pleased to hear from you but if you write don’t send anything beyond a letter in case we move.

What do you think of the war news? We seem to be doing jolly well now.

It is grand weather here now. Glad to say I am quite well.

Did you receive my post-card it was written in rather a hurry.

I hope you are quite well also Jess & Ethel.

Remember me to Darvills & Miss Dimond how are they all?


With much love

Your devoted
