Letter from hospital

I thought I should write to let you see IM safe and IM recovering. I miss you and the rest give every wizard a thrust from me and tell Rosier I hope shes being good. The hospital Is constantly got parvenue soldiers coming In suffering from nervous exhaustion and shell fog too so IM not the only nonpareil, the doctor said It Is an blur to the nerves and told me to rest and they are putting In place voltaic shock treatment.All the nurses are very sympathetic but roughlytimes when they find we cant hear them they call us all weak and say we are cowards. Im not suffering as much as most, a raw gentleman has been learning to walk again yet he motionless wants to get back to the frontline. Yes, am returning to the frontline soon so thats why I took this opportunity to write. We had strict orders not to take prisoners, no press if wounded my first Job was when I had finished cutting some of their wire away, to empty my magazine on 3 errands that came go forth of one of their d eep dugouts they was bleeding badly begging for them to be put out of their misery.They cried for mercy, but I had my orders, they had no feeling what so ever for us It makes my head Jump to think about It. One time I was In serious danger I was almost completely paralyses with fear. I was slating with Taylor (a fellow soldier) on the fire-step of a trench during an intense bombardment,when it seemed certain(p) that we must be killed at any moment. Shots fired around us each moment threatened to be the last. I was conscious of acidulous the fabric on my top to prevent my teeth from chattering.If I had been only if on that occasion I believe that I would be beat(p) now it was the presence of others that saved me. Its not all been like that, one evening me and Owen was in the barracks and I received a letter from you for my natal day and it kept me going for so long, but everyone has a breaking purport weak or strong, courageous or cowardly- war frightens everyone my breaking acm e has now unfortunately came. Give my love to everyone, Yours sincerely
