Dear Mater et Pater -
Just a line to let you know
that I am absolutely O.K. I sent a cable the other day saying that
wound was very slight. Hope that you got it and also believed it
for I assure you it is quite the truth.
Except for the odd headache
which is only to be expected I am alright. I donít know whether Iíll
get to England or not. Personally I hope not. Iíll get home
as soon as I get out of here anyway so what ought I to care. Well
it still looks as if we were winning doesnít it. Well I sincerely
hope so. I hope that it is finished this year though I hae mi doubts,
still it is good to even hope so. I am very glad that Wilson isnít
letting himself be kidded into doing anything foolish by having an armistice.
That would be the height of foolishness. They want to trim the Hump
first and I think they will too.
Well you know I havenít got
an awful lot of news, there isnít much to tell being here. I hope
my mail doesnít go astray. I wrote to my battery telling them to
keep all my kit etc. but to send the mail along. I expect that the
mail will arrive just as I go somewhere else and then I donít know what
will happen to the mail.
Naturally I havenít heard
from home for some little time now. I hope that you are all well
and that the Xmas trade promises to be ??? & brisker. That would
be fine eh!
Do you realize that Leslie
and I have been away two years now. Isnít it a ??? I didnít
think I would be away more than two years. But still it looks like
a little more than two years doesnít it? OH well as long as we are
winning why worry.
