8 Feb 1915 Don’t send chocolate

8 Feb 1915

The following is Jack’s last letter for 5 months. We know he came back to Britain in for a period in February 1915  and army records show he returned to the front a short while later so we must assume that letters between then and July 1915 were lost.

Dear Mother & Father
Just a few lines to let you know I am still alive &c. Have had a lot of rain here lately. Have just received your letter jolly pleased to get it first for about ten days. Don’t send chocolate I asked for shan’t want it. My feet will not be right for a long time. Kind regards to neighbours.  Love to Ethel & selves.

Your affectionate Son
