17th November 1916
A very short letter from Arthur – a very dull day for him, with no post from home. A route march in the bitter weather followed by lunch at HQ and then the anticipated trip to see the “Bow Belles”.
Arthur to Dollie
Fri. even. 10 o’clock
I’m afraid this will only be a very short note, for I’m going to try & catch the mail. To-day was one of the dull days – there was no mail in. I do hate these days without news from you.
The weather is still bitterly cold, but we have a brazier going & things aren’t so bad. My cold is much better: I do hope you have shaken off yours little one; do take all care.
To-day we went for a route march: I then went to HQ had lunch there & this afternoon we went into the Bow Bells. They are most awfully good.
Well, sweet heart I must go though I hate to say Au revoir so soon. Goodnight – God bless you …
