In the Field

Nov 6, 1916

Dear Dad and Mom

Just a line again to let you know that I am pinky as usual, hope you are all the same at home. I have not got a great deal to say for myself this time as I have rather a lot to say of late so a chap can’t always be a chatterbox. I am as usual anxiously waiting for the next mail. I wish we had a mail coming in everyday because I would like to have letters from you every possible chance but it cant be done. Have you received my photo yet, let me know as soon as you can, because if they have gone west, I will have to get another taken. I was not on church parade yesterday morning as I was on guard the night before and there was no service on sunday night so Lewis Morgan and myself went for a walk along the hard road and I was telling him I wish I was going to chapel at home, it was about six o’clock so that is the time you go to chapel. Well I hope this war won’t last much longer, it has lasted much to long and I won’t be sorry to settle down to the quiet life at home once more. I used to think it a very quiet existence but give me that before this little lot. I wrote to Jon the other day, hope he has had it by now. Give my love to Nain Jones, hope she is in good health and enjoying herself down in Wales. I met B. Fry the day before yesterday, he is in good health and wishes to be remembered to Dyfan. He is with the 2nd Welsh FA RAMC. He is not so fat as when I saw him before. I think he allows the chaps in his mob to come it on him. I would have laid a couple of them out before this time if I was him. Well I have no more to say, just now my address is Sgt. GC Roberts 3144, C. Coy 1/5th Welsh, E.E.F. Hope Mag and Baby are alright, also Dyfan and Mailys. Best love and best wishes to you all.

I am
Your loving son
