Dear Mum,

Just a line to let you know how I am getting on. All the wounds are healed up but the eye is just about the same. I think I will be here for a week or two yet. Steve Newton was lucky getting home. I heard he got hit last year near Ypres. I get the 20 pounds alright. The State Savings Bank is quick & lively but the Commonwealth you never know when you are going to get it. I had a couple of letters from Herb. The last one he sent me 10 shillings & it was very handy as you can only draw 3 shillings & sixpence a week while in hospital. He tells me I. Tompson & J. Downie are in the same camp as him. Snowy has managed it very well. He is going to come & see me if he can get away. I am getting all your letters lately, the last one was dated April 15th. Hoping everybody is well.

I remain your aff son,
