My Dear Mother

Sister told me she has written and [?] and the nature of the wound. Now Mother I expect you will have heard of my[?] [?] wound long ago as they took my name and number at battalion dressing station but this letter will satisfy you more.

Iam under the best of treatment and there is no danger at all. It will be some time before I get any of your mail but I will write regular myself

It is nice to be lying in [?] white bed again and being fed on the best of food. I had porridge this morning the first in months.

I hope that Lance Corporal hasn't confused you as I just got made one a couple of days before I went up to the trenches

Well Mother this is all for now.

With love to all
From Your loving Son

Now Mother Dear don't worry about my [?] I will get alright.

I thought I was going to send this letter away with Sisters still address the mail to the battalion [?]

I write and give you the address when I get in Eng.

No need to send anymore parcel as I would never get them and we get fed good.

The Preby Chaplain was in to-day and gave me a splendid little talk.
