Neil – Mother 7 March 1917

Pte N H Smith
A Coy 27th Reg

Dear Mother
Arrived all right about midday today. No sleep last night. Devil of a lot
roudyish on the train but it is all settled now. We are finally placed in the 27ths –
we missed the lot that were transferred to the 26th a (capt) Kim Dellow
formally master at Grammer is our O.C. and he is seeing what he can do to
transfer Trot and me to the Ambulance. Saw Vic tonight. He expects to leave
about Sunday or Monday, but is uncertain.

When you get the finished copies of my photographs you might send one of
each to me here to let me see how they have come out. Vic will write before
he goes. Time is about up for tonight.

Yours sincerely

May write at greater length later on
