Dear Old Dad,

Just a line or two to wish you many happy and healthy returns of your birthday. You’ll get this a bit late, but the wishes are just as sincere never the less. Rather hard luck for Clytie wasn’t it? Met Viv recently and he told me about it. Am getting Viv to put in a claim to have me transferred to his battalion. It will be better for us to be together. Heard that Vernies brigade is over here somewhere. Hope it’s true, anyway. Best of love, and hoping you are well and happy, your loving son, Percy.
