Sergeant Gutteridge, of the West Kents, writes home another of his cheerful letters, in which he says they are all merry and bright.

The boys did justice to the food provided by the colonel of the regiment, and the concert was a great success, the chief item being an original chorus by the sergeants of ‘B’ Company, entitled ‘The Nine Point Two,’ which caused some fun.

Today we had a football match between officers and sergeants, ??? Privates, and the men had all their own way.

The weather is to our liking, dry and cold.”
