Just a line to let you know I have again arrived in this most glorious country. How is Aunt and Uncle these days and yourself are you studying hard? I just wish I could drop in and take you to the play again. Did you go to see the “Mikado”? Oh by the way go easy on the rations. Gladys I didn’t like to mention it while I was there but you looked extremely well on short rations.
I am parading now and you should see me I have wasted away to a shadow. I have not wrote to George yet so he will have something to say when I do I suppose. I was detained two days in Folkestone on my return but after that straight going until I arrived here. I had about twenty letters waiting for me so this must be a note. Remember me to all including Turk, mother says she is well tell Aunt.
Excuse scribble and pencil GGH
