No 58 E Company
British Expeditionary Force
Dear M & F
Receive your three letters yesterday, took quite a time to read through them. Half our Bat: went up to the trenches yesterday and the other half should be going up today so you can think of me Sunday night having a nice time. The ground here is covered with snow & the streams round about are frozen. Tell Kel to keep where he is & feel satisfied. We have been billeted in a barn with big guns only a few hundred yards from us & when they fire the earth seems to shake. Don’t worry about me as I am quite well and not fed up yet. Kind regards to everybody. Love to Ethel and selves.
Your Affectionate Son
We are mixed with regulars most of them are nice chaps.
