Darling,

We are here at last, I hope this is the last move before I get demobbed in March.

We did not leave Bradford till 12.30, I had the pleasure of two letters from you before we left, and they cheered me up no end.

I had a sleep on the train, the first place I recognised as we passed was Derby, I don't think we came through Sheffield at all, I must have been asleep if we did.

This is a vast change from Bradford, the camp is 3½ mile from Litchfield itself, and real military and cold. The boys will find a great difference here, after being used to a fast life in Bradford, it is more like a prison to me. I will tell you more about the place tomorrow when we have had a look around, I have not seen much of it yet really.

Well my dear, I feel a little tired tonight, just a little travel weary you know, you will forgive me for this rather short letter won't you, darling I love you, you know.

Give my berst wishes to all I know, and keep smiling darling, within another five months I shall be out of this army for good, and ever.

Till we meet again darling I will always be thinking, and dreaming of you, you my only sunshine.

Yours Always,

Henry.
