Dear Mar & Pa
I received Gladys letter OK a few days ago. Gladys seems to be having a good time of it. You must excuse me for not writing lately as I haven’t been in the same place five mins together anyhow I am writing this in a spot John Alleman occupied not so long ago so I suppose there’s some hopes of staying hereabouts for a while. The weather has been awful lately. I developed a nasty cold about a week ago. Glad to say I’m practically OK again except that my teeth have been troubling me a bit. Today has been lovely & a lovely moon shines over the valley it is almost like day. Hope we get a spell of this weather and then we shall be able to get a move on. Well I don’t think there’s anything further to say. Hoping you are all well. A few cakes won’t be amiss in this spot along with that Trench Powder. If it isn’t too much trouble as I am miles from anywhere. The only things here are bits of trees & myriads of shell holes. Remember me to all enquiring friends. Will drop you pcs if unable to find time to write.
Yours with love Bergy
A drop of cough mixture from Turners underbank would do me good these cold nights.
