Tuesday Morn


My Dear Brother Sid,

Just a few lines as promised hope they will find you quite well.  As I am very well at present.  Well, Sid note the new address and the place.  This is about three miles from Canterbury and we are in a lovely park so everything is alright.

We shan’t be so long before we go in billets now.  I shall be glad in one way, then we shall be down in the town.

It was a lovely day for moving.  We were up at 2 o’clock in the morning and it was six hours ride in the train.  I came through Maidstone at 10 o’clock yesterday morning.

Well, Sid it is fall in time so I will close, sorry to write such a short letter.

So Goodbye

I remain

Your Loving Brother

Frank W
