Dear Dad and Mam

Just a line again to let you know that I am as per usual in the pink and A1 and hope you all at home can say the same. I am very pleased to be able to tell you that I received a letter from Dyfan dated Feb 10th and 16th diolch yn fawr Dyfan am dano. …..a typical letter from him and he does start in a funny way. I thank him for his kind congrats. Am going to write to him with this. I told you in my last letter that I had received a letter and a fine safety razor from Jon. I have already written to thank him. By Jove the Roberts family is getting on and increasing by degrees. What are they going to name the baby let me know. Fancy two boys. I wrote to congratulate Jon and Mag. I have not got any news for you this time so you must excuse this letter not being a long one. We are down well away from the line resting and it has done me …….. of good, I feel much better for it because my nerves ……. a bit after the White Hill stunt and that shock I had when on Cape Hellas did not improve things, but I am alright again I could not stand a halfpenny worth of shell fire when i was up in the line last but I will be alright again by when I go back. I had a letter from auntie Annie last night it had been addressed to the battalion I don’t know what it was addressed there for …….my new address number 241261 Corpl GC Roberts 159 Bde Trench Mortar Battery EEF. I hear by that letter that Mr Williams all b it went west a few weeks ago, what is the matter with him, the usual? Well I must hurry with this letter as it is waiting to be censored. I will write to Mr B Bebb in answer to the letter I had from him as soon as I can. Glad to hear that Mailys has been excepted at Bangor College. Well I must close more next time. Best love and best wishes to you all.

I am, Your loving son, G.
