My dear Gertrude,
I see I will have to fall back on my B.E.F. plan of a short midweek letter - we are kept quite on the hustle here. I will let you have a specimen days program on Sunday to fortify the contention. Just at the end of two days continuous rain. so pleased & have a [?] this evening & stars out.
I think I will in future send you on any letters I may receive during the week by the post & help swell out my deficiency but will content myself with this letter card for today.
I find there are quite a lot of Canadian Cadets here & also South African but none from Australia or N.Z. at least at present.
Ian seems to be doing well - has been out in a bath[?] chair. Berk has reached his Battalion (the 1st/14th London) at least I presume he keeps his new Number 510958, so that with B.E.F. should find him.
Have not had any further letter from you
Must close. Hope all is well. Much love
