25th September 1918 HMB
My dearest Mother
Here I am again, safe & sound, at the hospital.
It is just as well I came back when I did for there has just come in a heavy convoy and we are up to our eyes in work with three nurses sick & off duty.
I am busy x-raying people with really new wounds. The doctor is in great form but very busy as Col. W Affeleart has gone to another hospital for a few weeks to help re-arrange something, as they are doubling the hospitals at the front.
I hope you got my cable from Havre all right. I don’t think there were any yews: we only plant them if convenient or if there are some going begging.
I must dry up now and go on duty: I hear we are to have another convoy of some hundreds (the last was 250) at the end of the week. You may guess what that means.
Best love to you all
Your loving D
