F Hammond letter 10 Jan 1917


Dear F & M

Just a short line to say I’m gogging along OK in 1917.  I received your last letter a few days ago and suppose you received one from me about the same time.  Any how if my letter got astray I would like to say the parcels etc arrived here OK.  There is really nothing to relate.  Just jogging along quietly.  Our Boys played a football match against a neighbouring Divn and we had quite a good afternoon.  How are things at home, heard from Geo lately?  Suppose everyone is in the army by now.  Suppose Gladys has settled down to her studies again.

I am trying to turn into a pipe smoker since I received the pipe & pouch.

Well I think this is about all at present.  Hoping you are all well

Yours Gus
