27 Dec 1914

Dear Mother & Father
Received your letters of 15th 16th 18th 20th 21st & 22nd yesterday & today many thanks.  I should like a benzine match box arrangement very much. Is it poss to send me a cheap watch as I cannot see the time when in the trenches or at all come to that. You can treat yourselves & Ethel to something for Xmas with my club money. Had some snow and rain today, frost the day before. Heaps of mud over here. I have sent this first, two cards in an envelope and also for [expences?] for the [Batt.?] [rest illegible on this side of the card] Cheer up all
