Alf Smith’s letter Nov 1916

Dear Father


Just a few lines to let you know we are so far settled.

I met my friend down here & we are now sitting on the sea-front.

We have not got to do anything until tomorrow morning so the best thing to do is to keep out of the way we know a thing or two now.


Will write more later

With much love

Your devoted
