Thurs night

Dear mam and all

I had a ‘Newark Herald’ arrive yesterday, I think it was addressed in Eva’s writing, if so, tell her thanks a lot. I hope you’ll excuse pencil but writing this down at the mess and my pen and ink are up at the billet, I haven’t time to fetch them. Did you manage to get any fags, send them along please if you did, this is a miserable place for never having any fags in at all. I hope to be home, if not this week end, sometime next week I should have come as last Friday, if things had gone according to plan, however it won’t seem long now anyway, I’m looking forward to it I can tell you, I wish I were coming home for good.It’s payday tomorrow thank goodness, I hope Arthur isn’t wanting his money in a hurry because I never seem to have any, but I’ll pay him sometime or other. Now mam time draws on so I must close for now, with Goodnight and all love from

Eric xx
