We may have a chance to send some things back to England. It is still very hot and there are flies.
On arrival we are at once brought face to face with our first casualties. Andrews is with the Bn after all but we have not seen him yet. Willie Langley has a staff job as Paymaster but not with us but not far off so he ought to be all right.
You might show this letter to Nell as it is more up to date than my last to her. There is a splendid atmosphere of brotherhood here in all ranks wh it is splendid to feel.
Much love to mother and Susie and Zeffie and the kids. I have recd. a letter here from England already so may get some from home very soon - we have also recd yesterday's London papers wh is rather remarkable
Best remembrances to Fowkes, Miss Gore and all in the office.
Yr loving brother Arthur D. Crease
