Letter to Father 13 May 1918



My dear dad,


What do you think of my writing! Bit better than my usual scrawl isn’t it?  I am writing with my latest toy – a topping Waterman Edie sent me.  She also sent me a pair of socks & a pipe, so I am well off.  The pipe is the nicest bit of wood I have seen for a long time.  I am going to get her to buy all my pipes in future.


Well how goes it dad. My latest information is that you were a bit better on the 10th.  I hope to have a line from Win tomorrow.


I think I told you last night that I was applying to return. Curiously enough G.H.Q. rang up last night & said my own people were applying for me & they were sending an order along for me to go back.  So that makes assurance doubly sure.


It is a dirty miserable wet day here. I should like an armchair, a good fire & a clack with you.

I have no news dad. This is only just to pass the time of day with you.


With very best love

Your loving son
