Dear F & M
I was very much disappointed last week when I did not receive any letter from you on my birthday but I suppose you were on your way home and did not have time to write. Have you received that parcel yet, if so when my watch has been repaired send it on to the battalion and address your letters there now for I shall be back by this time next week. Will you also send a bottle of aspirin tablets at least 100 for I have had a lot of tooth ache lately. Has Gladys come back yet she seems to have had a very good time at Kibworth. Well I have no more news at present don’t forget to write again it’s a fortnight now since I heard from you.
