penetrated away beyond this in most places now. By the way Jack Cambie's name without the Jack is somewhat similar to the place I was near to when I was up the line. I don't think we have taken the place yet. If you think of a place that sounds somewhat similar you will know where abouts I was. Well Mother I must close now as it's time to get some sleep.
Much love to you & Pa & keep smiling from your loving son Erroll.
The news all seems to the good these days doesn't it? I don't hear as much now though as you out in BC. I haven't seen a paper for days, & only get scraps of news now & again, am arranging to have the weekly Times sent to me which will help some! By the way before I forget I got a nice letter from you & also one from Pa the day I left the Reinforcing Depôt, many thanks. Haven't had any since I came up here, but am anxiously looking out for some each day! It is great news to hear Bulgarians are down & out, Serbia will get their country restored to them now before very long. Turkey will be the next to crumble What price the Kaiser's chances now!? If this pace keeps up the war will be over before so very long.
