Alf Smith letter 22 February 1918

Feb 22nd 18


My Dear Father


How are you getting on in good old Blighty?  I hope they have not stopped your meat & sugar supply altogether if they do I can imagine you living on bully beef &c.  Thank you for the Sunday Pictorial it is the only paper I have seen since I left home.

We are still in the same place, & not having a bad time except for the weather being very cold it wants a bit of facing at 7 A.M. but there is no chance of getting the sack so it has to be done.  I notice it takes letters about six days to reach us here as we are much further inland.

I had a letter from Charlie, he told me that Albert came to see you on the Sunday that I went back.

Well I think I must finish now Dad as there is very little news to tell you.

The money you gave me is very useful you bet I have had some good feeds since I have been here also champagne &c I still have about £1 left so I am alright for the present.

I am glad to hear old Fritz has not paid you any night visits lately.

I hope you are in the best of health glad to say I am A1.

With much love from

Your devoted



P.S. How is Mr & Mrs Warman & Lilian I hope quite well remember me to them also Miss Dimond.
