Feature Letter of July 4th, 2020
I'm pleased to all you're all well as it leaves me the same. We are now billeted in an old barn about two miles behind the firing line, and enjoying our nest very much. We had a quiet spell in the trenches this last time but was quite lively the spell before. I suppose you've redd in the papers about the charge of our 1st Brigade and the way they had to give up the dearly won lines of trenches owing to shortage of ammunition and their reinforcements being late to arrive. They wouldn't have to give up our own lines if the 2nd Brigade hadn't arrived in the nick of time. Shouldn't be telling such tales but we've read them ourselves in the London papers fully a week ago.
