Bandsman W Metcalfe. Colchester.
Dear Emmie It has been a wet day today and I see by the papers that the people in London are clapping their hands as it is anti-air raid weather. We are on a big “stunt” tomorrow a retreat from Colchester: it will take all day so I don’t know whether I will get time to write. I think we get our rise tomorrow; we can all do with it. Love from Will.
