Fred’s letters – March 1917

27th March 1917

My Dear M & F,

Many thanks for your most welcome letter which I received yesterday. Glad to hear that you are all keeping well. 

I cannot understand why you don't receive my letters as I have answered every letter of yours and I have never been so long as a month writing to you since I have been out here. 

I have never received that letter from Miss Stace. The poor old girl doesn't forget me does she? I sent her a FSC [Field Service Card] the other day.

Well things are going a little better out here now. With luck I hope we shall finish it this summer and then once more we can settle down in peace. 

I thought of Arthurs birthday yesterday but we have been too busy to do much writing. 

I wish Father many happy returns of the day on the 29th. How old will he be and how old are you?

I hope he will have a good crop of potatoes after paying such a price for the sets. I hope his wish will come true and that we may be home to help eat the first lot dug up. 

Now I must close with fondest love to all. 

Au revoir and God bless you all. 

Ever your loving son,


For little Frankie
