December Friday 1915
A good many would be thinking of the homeland today & you will be thinking of us – I did not expect to be in such comfort I can assure you –
I was amused at Mother's label on my papers, "See that these are delivered", certainly it seemed effective as they were the first I had received. Sun came out for a few hours today & the sea is calm again.
We miss the big shells & Mauser bullets, & the smell of the corpses in No-man's land in front always strongest at dawn –
But the Chloride of Lime is still with us in the troop decks now mixed with steamer smells.
