GWL 4th September 1915

……….It is about time I thought of getting my winter rings.  What I shall want first is one of Thresher & Glenny’s trench coats…. I hate to think of the winter away from you again, but needs must when the devil drives.  The company writes an awful lot of letters these days – A large number have the legend S.W.A.K. on the flap, which being interpreted means “Sealed with a kiss”!  Apparently they are oblivious of the fact that the poor censor has to lick them.  Vicary is on leave till the 9th.  We had the rumour the other day that the war was over!”
