Dear Dad and Mam
Just a line again to let you know how things are am very pleased to tell you that I am still in the pink hope you all at home are the same. The old caravan has been on the move again and I have not been able to write you sooner. We are now in a country where it reminds me of Blighty on the one hand and the old old desert on the other. On one side there is a long plain and as far as can be seen is all green grass with daisies dandelions and even a few violets and cowslips. On the left is the desert with nothing but a great patch of yellow sand absolutely bare of any vegetation. I can tell you it’s a treat to see some grass or green once again. its surprising how you get two extremes like this together. I have never seen anything like it before but I should like to loose sight of the desert all the same. I wrote to you a week today hope you have had it before now. I have also written to Dyfan and Uncle Messach please enquire if he has had it. I am getting fed up with the monotony of this game and shall not be sorry to get back to civil life once more. I am like Moses and the children of Israel looking for the promised land things are getting a little more interesting now but the monotony has been rotten. There will be a mail in tomorrow when I hope to get a word from you again. I can tell you that I am very thankful for any letter I get from you it’s the only thing we have to look forward to and whenever there is a mail in I am like an eagle on the lookout for a letter I expect that my letters are equally welcome to you for it’s the only line of communication between us now. Well don’t think I am down in the dumps although I don’t feel very lively today somehow. Roll on the end of the war and then all’s well that ends well. Well I must wind up now hoping you are in good health. I wrote to Jon last week hope he has had it by now. Best love and best wishes to you all.
Your affectionate Son
