Pte. A.A. Smith
1st Essex Regt.
I expect we shall be settled here for a little time; so I shall be pleased to hear from you but do not send any parcels yet.
We had a good crossing & I expect we shall feel more settled when we get used to it again. Sleeping 14 in a tent so it is a bit of a squash but it helps to keep us warm.
Well there is very little news I can tell you.
Pleased to say I am quite well & hope you are all in the best of health.
With much love
