F. Springett letter 9 October 1917





Oct 9th 1917



My Dear Brother Sid,

Just a few lines in answer to your welcome letter received tonight also the 10/- note.  Thanks very much indeed for it, its jolly good of you to think of me.

Glad to hear that you were quite well as it leaves me “Top Hole”.

It as been awful weather here since Saturday but as dried up a bit today.  We could not go out at all on Sunday.  It rained all day even the Church Parade was postponed.

Yesterday we went for a route march we shall get plenty of them now.

Thursday Evening

Thank goodness we shall soon be out of canvas.  I think we go early next week.

I can tell you Sid, its getting jolly cold at night times.  They have just issued us out with an extra blanket which will make it a little better.

Well Dear, Sid I think I have any more news this time once, again thanking you kindly for the 10/- so I will say goodbye.

Have you got a photo of yourself to spare, if you have send it along please.

Best Love

I remain

Your Affec Brother
