Dear Marjorie
  Just a note to say I am OK and hoping you are too, at present I am at B.H.Q. I guess I shall be there about a fortnight you see I have taken over a chap's lorry while he is away on a course. It is much nicer here and the food is lovely, one may say that it is as good as the food which one gets at home. The meat is so tender that it almost melts in ones mouth. We have quite a lot of green peas, they are bought locally so you can imagine how fresh and nice they are. I am still trying to get my leave on the date which I told you, of course you understand that I am referring to the forty eight hour pass. I hope I shall be able to get that date but you see the leave has been cancelled until 5th August, so if many have put in for their passes before me, I shall have to stand down. In your letter you mention about the insurance book which you wanted to make, of course darling I very much doubt whether you would be allowed to get the consent of the office. I think the best idea is that you put it on my Pa's book. Well darling we here are still roaming around the countryside and I may say we are getting very little sleep which keep us very tired, it seems to be all guards these days. The guards are all double while this training is in process so you can guess I shall be glad when we have covered this period of training. Well darling, tell my people I have received their letter and will write as soon as I can find some time. Must close now as I am on guard in twenty minutes time, so cherrio darling hope to see you shortly,
Syd.

PS I hope you will be able to understand this note but really darling  I feel too tired for writing.
