Dear Emmie

Thanks for letter received this morning. I thought myself that my cap was too much over my eyes in photos. If I have time I will send large photo home to Mum this evening. Charlie Gibbs is second from the left of photo in third row. I will try to get a week-end at Harvest Festival but I will have to get a letter from Mr Chapman with a good excuse. I will write to him and ask him to write and ask me up to be at the service etc. We are shifting tomorrow night so I don’t suppose a letter in answer to this will reach me. I will let you know my new address as soon a possible. If you have seen Mr Rolfe I hope you are satisfied enough with his terms so as to start lessons and make a real success. I fully expect to be beaten and I hope I am in this case. Our football team played the unbeatable team last night and beat them two goals to nil. They were never so more surprised in their lives. As we were going on the field they said “Where’s the band” “We’ll put it up the band”. but they were sadly mistaken. I will close now as the light is failing

With Best Love Will xxx
