Pity we lost the frontage on the Belgian coast in 9 Inst. but I think we are getting ready (by the air fighting) to deal out another Blow.

We got a bad thrust on 7 Inst by the 21 Hun planes attack on London at 10 am on the Saturday morning. They got the corner of London Bridge, dropped a Bomb on St Pauls church yard, & a couple on Charing X Station, & set the top story of the GPO on fire for 3 or 4 hours. of course nothing appeared in the papers
Best wishes to all
