Alf Smith letter 25 March 1917


Mar 25 1917

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

Your loving
