Dear Dad and Mam

Just a line again today with the photo of myself enclosed hoping you will like it not so bad and not so good. How do you like the shorts, hope you won’t pass any remarks about my feet and also you don’t think my bare legs vulgar. I had these photos taken on leave as I told you I would. I am going back tomorrow so more work again then. I could soldier here for duration at any rate its been a very enjoyable week and a great relief from the monotony of working parties and trenches but it will take me all next week to get back into harness properly. My address is as usual Sgt GC Roberts 3144 C Coy 1/5 Welsh Regt EEF so please make a note of it so that I shall not have to put it down again. How is Mailys and Dyfan getting on hope they are alright. I am enclosing you six photos please give one to Jon and Nain and Auntie Annie and of course yourself and give what is left to whoever you like. I have marked three of them but left the rest for (you) to picj which you think is best. Well I have no more to say just now hope you are all in the best of health I am as usual A1. With best love and best wishes to you all.

I am
Your affectionate Son

PS Please notice my Tash.
