My Dear Brother Sid,


Just a few lines hoping they will find you in the best of health, as I am A1 at present.  I am sorry I haven’t answered your letter before, but it is the same old tale, no time.  I am glad you enjoyed your days outing. St Albans certainly is a very nice place.  Well, Sid I don’t think we are moving after all, at least until we are 18-8.  They have altered it now.  A draught went away last week to the Norfolk Reg. and Bob Lambert went with them.  He was 18-8, still I can easily find another mate.  I am sorry I made you so tired but I guess you didn’t mind it.  We are still having some lovely weather but not quite so hot as that Sunday.  I think that was the limit.  Well Sid I haven’t much to say this time so I suppose I must close.

Thanks very much for the way in which you treated me last Sunday.

Well Goodnight Sid

From your

Affec Brother
