STILL CHEERY AND BRIGHT
Sergeant Gutteridge, of the West Kents, writes home another of his cheerful letters , in which he says they are all merry and bright.
“Had a great time yesterday. The company had a dinner and concert.
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 versus privates, and the men had all their own way.
The weather is to our liking dry and cold.”
