David to Ethel (Ginger) Linn Feb 4th 1918 Post card No. 6
I was awfully sorry to hear from Mum of Mrs Linn’s death. Please give John my deepest sympathy. She also says that John is alright again, which is great good news. I have your letters of Nov 15th and 24th and glad to get them, as they contain some news which we don’t get much of here. Thanks ever so much for sending the socks to the battalion. A few of my own men were not with me that day, so doubtless they got some of your good things. Can you send me some of Dicks belting for boot repairs together with plenty of brads and hob nails. I can’t get these from home and in consequence am having to go very carefully with my boots. Berne have written saying they are continuing the bread, but it hasn’t turned up for the last 3 or 4 weeks. I think there has been some stoppage in the transport somewhere. A number of officers are going to Holland from here, those captured early in the war. I envy them, but I don’t want to go to Holland I want to get home. I have had 4 photos of the kiddies and can do with some more.
