We work at night and sleep in the day time our work is about two miles from our billets and we can not leave our billets until dark and have to be back again at day break so that dosen’t leave us very long to work for it dosent get dark until 9.30 and is light in the morning again at three oclock. Well Glady, there is not much news so with love to all will say bye by
