Censors have ceased work. I think it a pity. This is a sample of what comes in.
"We are polishing irons & bits, & doing ceremonial work, practising for a visit from the King or Prince of Wales. What do we want him for, he's not been fighting & is only a man – if the officers aren't careful there will be a riot etc. etc."
The rations have been reduced 10% since Armistice & coming back to area of Canteen etc., but the men growl a lot & we hope to get the 10% on again soon.
