and there were more privacy.

The aeroplanes here do wonderful stunts enough to make one gasp. Some of the aviators have been to the front.

No prospects of leave but quite a good prospect of getting to the front. Brian Drake wd never get there - that is a sure thing. Major Pym is taking a special course in musketry & field officer's duties - Lukin Johnston has lost his brilliant young brother. Harry Greaves has lost one son & the other is badly knocked about & has lost an arm.

A.C. Innes' son is in my platoon & is doing well. He & young Floyd showed a considerable amount of pluck on the march down here wh was very trying to the men in their awful kit - I hope I may be permitted some day to say what I think & know of the Canadian Government esp. in respect of the Ross Rifle, Lewis mach gun & the Oliver equipment. I am getting cramp so good bye for a while - My health was never better & all the exposure & wet does not even give me rheumatism.

Love to all. Yours Arthur
