I had just come back from a six day pass (dead broke). When the Sergeant came up to me with the postal order for $25 Was very glad to get. And am very grateful. Hugh is now in the same company as me now. He was in the Base reserve before. And I guess he was glad to get transferred.
I went to Ted Everist’s home in Lingfield Dormans Land Surrey. He is in the same company as me. And he certainly is a fine fellow. And his folks are just as good. They certainly treated me fine. And they want me if I ever get wounded to be sure to go to there place and they will look after me.
The only fault I found on my leave was that I couldn’t sleep on a feather bed for the first couple of nights. I also saw a little bit of London.
Well dad must close now. I want to slip around to the Salvation Army tent and get a cup of tea before ‘lights out” sounds.
Your loving son
Joe is my nickname here. How do you like it?
