No. 7925934. Sgt. Greenwood, R.T.
9th Battn. R.T.R.
Jess dear, I have only time for a short note, but I must let you know that this latest gap in my letters need cause you no anxiety. We have had one or two jobs to do during the last three or four days and letter writing has been an impossible luxury. I do not know when I will be able to send you a decent letter, but I will try and send short notes as frequently as possible whilst present conditions prevail.
Meanwhile, I am receiving your letters reasonably quickly. I now know that you are better and that Barry has passed the worst stage of the vaccination. This is good news, and I hope he will soon be normal once again.
I am quite well… in spite of the weather. We have had much heavy rain recently, but the last two days have been reasonably decent, altho’ it is now much colder – especially in the mornings. It is some consolation to know that the enemy has to endure the same conditions with perhaps worse equipment… judging by the appearance of prisoners.
Aur revoir, my dear… and try not to worry. Things are going pretty well over here.
