Dear Elsie, Just a few lines to lett you know I getting on allright out here. Sorry I did not write before, we had a nice voyage on the sea. It was very calm and it didnt take long to get here. Have you heard from Frank [his older brother] lately, a few of his chaps passed through here the other day, I think they were on there way to a rest camp. So I may see something of him sometime or other. You need not trouble to send me any fags as I get enough to last me. Well Elsie I cant stop for more they [illegible word]. I hope this will find you all quite well. Your loving brother Arthur.
