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.
Your Loving Brother
