Dear Dad and Mam

Just a line to let you know that I am alright hoping you all are the same. You will notice that I have changed my address again it will make no difference to the letters you have already sent, they will follow me on here. Now I have some news for you. I met George Parry yesterday & he looks well, he is a machine gun sergeant. It was from him that I heard that poor Jack Jones had been killed also one of the Edwards. Jack was very much liked and respected in his batt He had a civil answer for everybody, please give Lily my sympathy. Edwards was a very brave fellow, he is killed going over the parapet to bring in wounded he was a stretcher bearer. Earney Jury is here somewhere guarding Turkish prisoners. George is coming to see me this afternoon. The other bit of news I have for you is that on the way back from seeing George, I was coming through the Essex Garrison Camp when a sergeant handed me 4 letters dated Sept 9. Sept 24. Oct 9. Oct 12. The first I opened was the one with the memorial hymn sheet to Jack Jones. The one Sept 9 was from Mr Lewis of H’west I was very glad to get those letters because there was plenty of news in them. In one was a letter from Mailys, very glad to get it, very decent letter and the sloppy ones went down alright would like a few more of them. What has become of Dyfan and Jon, have not had a word from either of them. Very glad Nain Jones was better after her visit to S. Wales. Give her my love will write to her at an early date. Glade to hear of Mr Evan’s promotion, give him my congratulations. Has conscription come in England yet, will be a good thing to get the slackers in. Well hope you are all in good health, I am in the pink. I must now close with best of love to all.
I am
Your loving Son
Goronwy
P.S. Had a letter from T Dodd he is in hospital at Malta sick
