Arthur is now “up” in the front line at Hebuterne – writing a brief note to Dollie from his dug out in a village cellar.
Arthur to Dollie
In a Cellar, Satur. 8.15am
This can only be the briefest of notes to tell you that I am very fit, though awfully busy & rather tired. The post goes at 8.30 so I shall just send this off & write a long one after breakfast.
We came up on Thursday. I’ve heaps of your dear letters to answer. God bless your dear heart. They are such a help & comfort especially when I’m up!
