Letter to Mother - TN Wilmott
08/09/2015
My dear mother

We came out the trenches yesterday evening and present are billetted just behind. We are going 'in' again tomorrow in the same trenches so we are not having long wait.

The trenches are in an awful state. A foot deep in either mud or water so my T boots will come in very useful.

There is a tremendous lot of work to do up in trenches now for the winter.

I had a bathe in the canal today. Very dirty but better than nothing.

They shelled the canalside very heavily when I was going up to the trenches on my way back from leave and knocked holes in the tow path all the way up.

Will write tomorrow if I get a chance, but no time now.

How is Robert? And where?

Your loving son Tom
