I hope you are quite well.
Have you received many letters from me I have written several. I have only had one letter & a paper from you since I have been here, I should think some of them must have gone astray.
We are going to join the 10th Battalion probably to-morrow I shall be glad of a parcel then will let you know as soon as we get there.
I shall be pleased to have a letter from you, address it as usual 15th I.B.D. &c as it will be sent on if we have left here.
No more news at present. Glad to say I am A.1.
With much love from

My Dear Nell,
Just a few lines to let you know I am quite alright & well. I have received your letter & parcel & must thank you for them.
We are now out of the trenches and in billets for training. We have a pretty decent billet about half an hour’s walk from town. It is quite a change to get away from trenches and to get into a town where we can enjoy ourselves a little.
Pleased to know you enjoyed your weekend at 20B. You seemed to have been having a “Gay Time” rolling home at 12 P.M. It is a wonder that the door was opened for you. Next sentence Blue Pencilled.
Have you received any of the letters that must have gone astray. Have made a few enquiries but have not heard anything yet.
Well Dear you have all the news etc so must close. Please remember me to your Mother & Father & to Bert when you write. With Fondest Love & Kisses from
