Letter to Milton Home Folks 1917

The date of 21st November 1917, was given to letters, extracts of which were printed in the Milton Ulladulla Times as coming amoug the Soliders’ Letters to Milton home folks. Listen to what Pte. E Millard had to say!

I think we will be in the line again again for Christmas. I met Sid Ingold the other day coming out of the line. I could only recognise him by his voice, couldn’t see him for mud. It was awful the last time we were in – the worst yet. Up to our waists in mud and water. Incredible, but a fact. Am longing for some good tabacco. The stuff issued nearly chokes a man. I do alright for cigarettes. A mate of mine has a sister in England who keeps us both well supplied.

I have been recommended for promotion for good work in the line last week, I would sooner be at my present job. It is more interesting. I am on Headquarters Intelligence as a sniper. Saw Percy Harrison and Hubert [sic] Francis. No snow yet.
