6 Nov 1915 Bombers wear a red grenade …

No 58 B Co
No 5 Platoon

Dear Mother & Father
A few lines to let you know I’m keeping fit & quite cheerful. I received the Bulletin the other day quite interesting news in it especially on the back page. Have you seen it?  The weather is still cold & very wet tho’ we do not suffer through the latter as we have a fine Mac: each. Today we the bombers have been practising bomb throwing & I hear in a day or two we shall throw live ones.  Bombers wear a red grenade (small diagram) on the right forearm but we have not got ours yet.  Had a nice letter from Mr Hudson yesterday shall answer it tomorrow if poss:  Hope all are well at home & as cheerful as myself. Kind regards to all neighbours & love to Ethel and selves.

Your affect Son
Jack
