On board H.M.S “Seang Bee”

It seems ages since I wrote to you last time. It doesn’t make much difference though, as all our mail has been disorganized. Christmas Eve we received our Billies and Puddings. I got my Billie from Miss Dorothy Andrews, Woodville, and my pudding from Victoria. It was great fun opening the Billies. The fellows were like a lot of children, laughing over the contents. Mine contained raisins, toothpaste, a pocket writing pad, some handkerchiefs, and some Christmas Cards, also Chocolate and Cigarettes. The worst of it was that we had our morning orders – we were to move at 9a.m. on Christmas morning, but at the last moment they were cancelled. Eventually we got off the next morning and came aboard this boat, and are now, we presume, bound for Alexandria. All our last month’s mail is travelling with us on the “Ascanius”.

Best love to all.
Lance.
