No. 7925934. Sgt. Greenwood, R.T.
9th Battn. R.T.R.


Tuesday evening.

Jess dear,

I have not written to you for two or three days, but my silence has been unavoidable. We have been under constant fire from the enemy, and most of my time seems to have been spent diving beneath our vehicle for safety. Am becoming pretty good at this business. I can practically run on all fours now! Needless to say, there is no such thing as dignity under these conditions.

The weather has been grand for the last two or three days: very hot and sunny… But the R.A.F. did its best to blot out the sunshine this morning. There has been an enormous air raid, and an unnatural sort of fog seems to have pervaded the atmosphere ever since. It was very heartening to we ground forces to see such obvious air strength. Am looking forward to many more such demonstrations.

I received your letter dated Sat., this evening: a long newsy letter for which I thank you. You do not seem greatly perturbed by Barry’s little indisposition, so I don’t feel really worried. But I sincerely hope he is now quite well again. Your next letter will perhaps bring better news.

Must leave you now, dear…

Yours always,
