Letters from the front WW1 - TN Wilmot
My dear mother

We are now out for 12 days rest which is rather enjoyable. It means we are going to get an extra long time in the trenches but still it is a good thing to get the extra rest before we get the extra trenches. It will be about the longest rest we have had.

We are getting up a battalion Boxing Tournament during the rest. Barton and I are getting it up and it is quite a big job as neither of us know anything about it.

I hope to be going on leave in about 2 or 3 weeks.

How is Larry getting on? I saw somebody who had seen his battalion in their present billets. They are down at the base and having quite a good time. They have been turned into an OTC now.

Your loving son Tom
