Fred Hammond letter 19 Aug 1916

19 .8. 16

Dear F & M

Just a line to say I am still merry and bright.  I have quite a lot of correspondence to answer & really don’t know when I shall be able to reply to some of it as postal facilities are rather rigid at present and a Field Post Card answers the same purpose.  I think I told you I received a parcel from you some days ago it was just the thing.  So you have been having quite a number of visitors lately I learn.  Glad to hear my dawg can swim anyway.  I think after that news he stands a chance of another years life if Lloyd Geo & Co don’t do it on us too much.  Sorry to hear Gladys didn’t quite manage it but never mind Kid I think we shall be able to manage it between us.  Hope you have a good time with Willie.  Just received some cigs from him yesterday so I am quite a factory today puffing up.  Everything is nice & quiet here just the sort of place to recuperate on the borders on a small village which possesses a brewery.  A few of us had our phizoggs taken the other day.  Three out of the 4 are our old brigade operators.  Don’t take the bhoy in the middle for a German prisoner has he’s one of our allies.

This is all this time so Cheerho

Burgy
