them off. so I can say I had the British Army Kilts on. the officers came around because we would not put the Lights out. they went out pretty quick. so the next morning they told us about it. they could not do anything till we got to Bramshott. so there we got it: we were checked up with 2 Barrels stolen from the Canteen. I think one Barrel was enough that night. I think I have said enough for this letter. I send my Best Wishes to all my Friends in Barkerville tell your Kiddies I was asking for them I think our oppertunity is coming soon. Tell Alf I will get him that Helmit. So good Luck to you
I am your old Friend Pte George Gilchrist No 443781 C Coy. 54th Battn Bramshott Camp Hants. England
