June 30 1918
Received your box of tobacco a short time ago and it certainly was good. Thanks ever so much for sending it.
Am through my training now and am transferred to the Siege Artillery so my address is now
Reserve Battery, C.G.A
Witley Camp. etc.
There is something I want, to tell you that Iam very sorry about. I took your camera on leave with me and myself and six Imperials were in a couch asleep when the conductor woke us up at a station and told us we had about 10 seconds to change trains. Well, army haversacks are all the same so by mistake I got the wrong one and somebody else got mine. There is no address in his and I am not sure whether there was in mine ornot. Anyway I heard nothing about it although I missed my train looking for him. He left a fairly good kit so I didn't lose much beside the camera. He also left a lot of souvenirs of Jersusalem which if I cant locate him I will send home. I am awfully sorry but I'll get you a new one when I get back.
I was in Wales on six days and was all around the country. Did you ever heard of Bettws-y-coed or Llandudns or Snowdon or the passes of Sychanant & Aberylaslyn, or Conway Castle, or Carnarvon Castley or the little town of Lllanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerych-wyrndrobwobll-llandysllisgogoch.
Well I was at all those places and coming back I called on Charlie Adams in Birmingham.
Well I must close now.
