Very many thanks for two letters which arrived since I sent you my very hurriedly scribbled note and the few souvenirs. The weather is now simply lovely once more, we are a long way behind the line, I have a good tent and everything is most enjoyable. We ran into an old friend today. Tony who was “locum” Doctor when I bust my knee up – he is at a C.C.S. here and came over to see us – rather surprised I think to see so many that he knew: most Btns. have changed more than we have. Hopes of leave are distinctly good. Let me know when Dad returns from his holiday as I do not want to be arriving only to fine that he is away. The Americans seem to be doing well, I only wish we could join them.
