Received your letter for which I thank you. We have finished the night work idea and I for one am very thankful, although we did nothing at all it was really impossible to do anything. Imagine trying to clean a truck in the dark. The most we did was when we went on a march and at times that was hopeless for one could not always see the chap in front. The only time you knew some one was in front was when you stepped on his heels. Today we had to search all the billets, my what a job was I glad when we had completed the job.
The insurance these days does not sound much like a business although darling I should not upset your self to much about it every thing will work out alright in the end. Do you see any thing of the girls whom you worked with at that place in Mattock Lane also have you seen anything of Queenie these days. I still often think of Bill, we have a chap in the regiment who is like Bill in looks and in mannerisms. When the Reg. gets together I always look out for this chap, I saw him when we were at Salisbury. Well darling I must close now.
