[Monday 27 November 1916]
( Following paragraph is crossed out)
Posted a letter to the wife from Salonika but would be no advantage posting to you so send these notes on Arrival at Alex about Thursday next - All dressed up in our Lifebelts again better chance now that only 100 Officers are left on board with 2400 Tommies we had little chance.
I am not sure where my Regiment is, but will soon find out-
After 6 months have passed I shall try & get leave or a trip to Australia somehow.
