Transaction: My dearest Lillie
Your birthday has suddenly recurred to me, so hope I shall be in time to wish you many happy returns. Later on, I will try and get you something to meet the august occasion.
I got the first pair of socks and the pair with the last parcel – you had better keep
them over now until I rejoin, which will not be long. You see I have to go to the base first and if in the meantime I leave here it will have to be redirected probably once or twice and the chances of it eventually reaching me remote. Hold on! I can get tobacco from the A.S.C. canteen here. I do little here but read – except a turn on the front in the morning - and after all it is the rest that is so beneficial.
The Regt. is now in Rest Camp, not much of a place tho’ as I heard that shells drop with regularity in the streets.
There is no news to hand and tea is coming in.
With fondest love and good luck
Your loving brother
Army Post Office Station
