My Dear Mother & Father
Just a few lines to let you know I’m quite well & cheerful. Have not been able to write during the last three to four days as we have been on the move, and we have received no letters either for that period. Yesterday we marched 14 miles in the snow, it was a devil of a trip either up to the ankles in the snow or sliding about in the slush. Have had plenty of snow over here during the last week & quite a lot of fun out of it. I received your parcel safely many thanks. Have not received cigs from Mr L yet. Will write again as soon as poss. Love to Ethel & selves & hoping this will find you all well.

I remain

Your affect Son
Jack
