my testimony to the work and value of your gallant son
down here we can poke out our tongues to Fritz with impunity
Dear Dad, I'll tell you a bit about what I saw......
Environment and everything is dead against imaginings
I really don't feel a scrap like writing.
the Huns behind barbed wire
we have always been a very lucky battalion – hope it keeps up
if you were to buy a pound of army biscuits I bet that they would last over three years
