FOR GOD, FOR KING & FOR COUNTRY
H.M. FORCES ON ACTIVE SERVICE
Friday Evening 1917
Same Address Deal
My Dear Brother Sid,
Just a few lines in haste hope they will find you in the best of health as it leaves me very well at present.
I have been down here since last Sunday but are going back tomorrow. “Thank Goodness for that”.
It is about 15 miles from Margate so you see it’s a decent little march.
I have just reckoned our marching up this week and by the time we get back to Margate it will be about eighty miles. “Some boot leather gone.” Ha Ha.
Yes I have had a fairly decent time down here only of course it’s a jolly quiet place as usual.
Dear Sid just excuse this very such letter but I really haven’t got any more time to spare.
I will write a longer letter next time.
Your Affec Brother
With cover to Mr S.K. Springett, 29 Bath Road Dartford Kent
