Just a line hoping you are all in real good health, as it leaves me a lot better just at present. I have had a letter from Lily, and am anxiously for one from you Dear Mother. Will you get George to write to my Regt. Head QRs. and tell them to send me clothes and boots.You will be able to

guess my build. I should like my boots to be size 10 and I can wear two pair of sock's this cold weather. I hope he will oblige me. I hope Tom is in good health. You must let me know as soon as possible. I hope you have written to Ted for me. Well Dear Mother I am getting real well now. I am pleased to say I shall be none the worse for my adventure very soon, so we must hope to see one another

very soon. I expect Syd will be quite a man now. I have nearly forgotten what you are all like as it seem's ages since I saw you all.Well Dear Mother you must take care of yourself especially this winter. Give my love to Maria & Tom. A kiss for the children xxx. Please remember me to everyone I know. Don't forget to tell George. I must now conclude with very Best Love from Your Ever Loving Son Billy xxxxxx"
