My Dear Brother Sid,
Just a few lines hoping they will find you in the best of health as it leaves me A1.
Fancy her arriving at 3 o’clock that was rather a nuisance for you. Still I might stand a chance of seeing her yet.
I can’t promise to be down here by Sunday next week. I hear that we are moving next Wednesday.
Still I will let you know as soon as I know, you bet I will.
It is awful cold down here, really to bad as our parade ground is right on the sea front.
The wind does blow too.
Yes Sid, I had a right time while I were home, thanks very much for all you did for me, I shall never forget it.
I’ve got over my leave now, it wants a bit of doing through.
Well Dear Sid, I hope this letter finds you A1. I don’t think I have much more to say this time, so I will close, wishing you a Happy New Year also the Best of Luck.
Your Affec Brother
P.S. Excuse short letter
With cover to Mr S.K. Springett, 29 Bath Road Dartford Kent
