Nov 24th 17
I found your parcel waiting for me when we arrived here & it was very welcome; the contents were tres bon as usual especially the cake, & jam thank you very much.
Well Dad I was very pleased to receive your letter, & to know you are all well.
We are getting along farely well out here although the weather is jolly rough as you can guess now.
I believe you mentioned about sending me a large parcel for Xmas I should appreciate it very much as you know but I think the usual size you send would be best as we might be on the move when it came & as you know we have to carry our house on our backs so there is not much room for spare stuff. I might be coming home soon but don’t count on that I think myself it will be early in the New Year.
I should like some Harrises Pomade when you are sending another parcel so as to slaughter a few germs as well as Germans.
Ciss wrote to me yesterday I suppose you have to go very steady with the whisky at 12/- per bottle. I was pleased to receive Ethel’s letter I will write to her next time.
Where do you think of moving to this time I suppose you hardly know at present?
Well I think I must stop now no more news this time.
Hoping you are all merry & bright & in the best of health glad to say I am A1.
Remember me to Mr & Mrs Warman & Lilian I hope they are quite well.
I was wondering if you can still get Shortbread or Shortbread biscuits I should very much like it if it is not too much trouble to get them.
Well Au revoir keep smiling.
With much love
