SERGEANT GUTTERIDGE STILL GOING STRONG ON CHEERFULNESS
Look like having another Christmas out here, but we live in hopes of Frits giving in before long.
Dear Sir, _ Still we live, and no complaints.
More work than worry at present.
We have been having a fairly good time these last (few) weeks, football, boxing &c., being our chief items with the regiment. We have now turned our attention to the more serious part of the programme, and are now leaving Frits with a decent few R.I.P’s thrown in as well, I trust.
Rather quiet this part of the line. A change from the part we occupied last month.
We look like having another Christmas out here, but we live in hopes of Frits giving in before long.
