3rd Can. Div are over in England now and as soon as they pull out for Canada we cross over to England. I shall be mighty glad when we move now am tired of the same old scenery here. We turned over all our Machine Guns etc today, and we are turning over the Gun [limbers?] in a day or two to the Imperial Ordinance, so a move is really in sight. Am glad I just got my trip to Brussels in, in time, I had two decent days there. It is a beautiful city, buildings are very fine. I went to the Opera one night to a piece called Orphée. The play was all in French so I wasn't much the wiser being a poor French scholar! Still I enjoyed the music - By the way I have sent off a couple of small parcels of souvenirs which I had knocking around in my bed
