Dear Marjorie
  I have not heard from you for a while, I hope you are keeping well, I do not remember whether I told you that I am a driver now, it is a lousy job, but it will make a change. When I get tired of this job I hope that I shall be able to get transferred to some thing else, I do not think this regiment will go abroad at least for a long time, it is very much under strength in all      departments, we are going on another shoot next week, it will be for one week I can assure you I am not looking forward to it, the snow has been terrible today and the cold wind almost cuts one in two, our leave has been postponed for an unknown     period, this is a rotten Reg.'t. there are very few privileges given to the men who come from London. We had a lecture today and at the end the C.O. asked if anybody had any complaints, so I let him have it, I wanted to know why the London boys could not get evecke nor day passes his answer was unsatisfactory so I told him want I thought of the answer. Heck! Did he burn? I thought he was going to put me on a charge, all the boys patted me on the back after the meeting. I am afraid that I am in his bad books now, the least little thing I do is wrong, I guess the old so & so will put me on a charge, the devil can always get a person in the long run. I am becoming a bad boy lately with the army, but the red tape really gets me down at times. I want to make a break for it and desert from the ruddy outfit but commonsense tells me to stay put. I debate the question in my mind constantly. Well darling so far this letter is all about myself, so I will enquire about you, is my pops still getting in your hair, or have you started taking no notice, I hope the latter is the case I bet you still find it cold on the cycle, expect you are a marvel driver and a speedy one also, Well darling I must close now as my mind is a complete blank for doing any more   writing
    So cheerio,
With all my love

Syd.
