Mrs H. Johns
Dear Mother:- I am going to write you after all. I had decided to wait until tomorrow night but as I have some time tonight I will go to work. Its very cool up here to-day so its not very nice writing to-night we have our oil-stove burning so its not to bad in our tent. Our 4 blankets come in very handy too. We are kept pretty busy these days. They sent me to the bombing school for hour day that is they sent 22 men from our Batt.

had one of his men strapped with a belt I guess he will lose his job you want to rub it into mrs Smith about Will's Col tell her he must be some leader. I hope your legs do not trouble you much and also hope they are all well. I am feeling fine and have been well ever since I came back my knee troubles me some-times but you know a sprain takes a long time to get well. If it is bent very long at a time it hurts to straiten it out so I guess it will get well in time. I do not know yet when our next pass comes so its no use guessing. Well I guess this is all for now hoping you all are well
