Good Friday

Posted: April 2, 2015 by saraherhodes in 1915

Wednesday was a “red letter day” for us here. We received the first mail we have had for about six weeks, and we felt that fate had indeed been dealing us a back handed blow till now. There were about 112 bags for the 3rd Brigade. I received 17 letters and four papers. I have resigned from the boat crew and will now have a chance of landing and seeing a bit of the country. We have held quite a party exchanging news from our letters. I received those sox, they were very welcome I can assure you, just what we are wanting – you can send as many as you like. All the cuttings you sent are very interesting. I see the A.R.C. is coming to light with a few wins. I am glad the post cards and brooches etc. got home safely. You would enjoy being here everything is so lovely and green, all round the harbor is a ring of hills, with wind mills dotted all over them, and little villages nestling in the hollows.

We are all in the best of health and looking very fit and bronzed. I don’t think we will get another mail for a fortnight, but you can bet we will devour this last lot properly. Well I will have to dismiss.

Yours as ever, Lance.


Note: A.R.C. is Adelaide Rowing Club.
