Alf Smith’s letter 24 Feb 1917

Feb 24th 17


Dear Father


I was very pleased to receive your letter.

As you see we are still at Felixstowe, & I do not think we shall be leaving this week.

I should be very pleased with a parcel but it is no use to send anything under present conditions we do not know when we might be going but I shall be very glad to hear from you.

I went to the pictures last night we do not boast of a theatre here so there is no where else to go in the evening except the soldiers clubs there are plenty of them.

How is everything going I suppose you had a good flare up to celebrate your birthday but I can guess you did not go far beyond your Picture Palace just to drink your health?

How is Mr. & Mrs. Warman & Lilian please remember me to them.

Hoping you are all in the best of health.

With much love

From your
