F Hammond letter 25 August 1918

25.8.18

Dear F & M

Sorry I am rather late in writing to you but we have been rather busy just lately.  Glad to say I am having a cushy time now.  The weather is tres Bien just the sort of weather for a holiday.  Had a letter from Gladys she seems to be having a nice time.  Suppose she will be back again with you by this.  Tell her the rose bud had a prominent place in the office but I would sooner have seen it on her best blouse.  I was engaged on a tin of Bully Beef the other day when I was told an officer wished to see me.  I thought it might be Jack but was rather surprised to see Jim Hopkinson in all his war paint he looked very well and wished to be remembered to you all.  Finally I saw him speed away on a motorcycle.  The war news is very extra it makes one think the war will soon be over.  Still we have a long journey yet unless the people of Germany have a revolution still we are on the way and in any case it won’t last much above a twelve month.  How are you all keeping it’s about time you took your holidays.  I’m thinking where has Geo got to.  It’s some time since I troubled you to send me any Bradbury’s but would very much like a couple just now.
