It is some sight to see our areoplanes work over the enemy lines and see the Bochs shoot at them we have counted as many as two hundred shells shot at one machine and them lighting all round it & never get touched they are in the air all the time but we have not seen a German machine since we came here. I suppose John Hops beat Ward out of the Bullion Mine at the Forks and has a big claim up at Barkerville someone ought to have that whole bunch interned. when you write let us know how the election went - there was nearly a solid liberal vote polled by us in Eng. Let Joe Stephens read this letter I promised to write.
