Wed. 29th Nov. France 1916
Dear Alice,
I recieved your cards today and was pleased to hear from you. We are close up to the firing line but have not been in yet. There is a few shell holes around here. We are both quite well and having a good time. We have just been down for a hot bath you get a clean change of clothes given to you too. This is not quite up to England but could be worse. I must now say goodbye
                                                                                Your sincere friend
          Alf

Alot of our chaps were sent to France last week as reinforcements. Tom Noble is over here now I saw him last Sat. They are all isolated with mumps we have got 250 german prisoners here I m sending you a photo it was finished in a hour so is not much good. I must now close
                                                                                   with best love
