21 Nov 1915 I’ve started wearing my cardigan …

No 58 B Co 5 Platoon

My Dear Mother & Father
First page partially illegible

You’ll be pleased to hear I’m still going strong [and in] the Pink. I received your Reg letter yesterday rather disappointed at only [finding] Iron Jelloids still doesnt [—-d] as you’re sending some [—] in a day or so. Don’t forget to send 5 franc [notes] as I can’t change English notes out here. It’s rather [—   having] to billet chaps of the 21st though suppose you can’t grumble as others are doing the same. By the way where do they sleep & feed & what rations do they get. I’ve started wearing my cardigan as the weather is getting very cold & the gloves that were issued are very warm too. Rather sporty of Mr Cornish sending a parcel (Ive not received it yet) I’ll write him as soon as poss. Last time he wrote he told me his Sister & Miss Milward were writing but I’ve received no letters from them yet. Ive not heard from Teddy probably he’s been too busy of late to write. Hope he’ll go over home often especially as he’s billeted so near. Have no more news at present. Give my kind regards to all neighbours & with love to all at home.

I remain

Your affect Son
Jack

P.S. Next time you send a parcel put in a few handkerchiefs.
