Tho follo\'ing letter has befen,received by i.ethhridge friendil from Bernard Burrows, of the 6l8t Battery in .Franco: Gist Battery, C.F.A., l-'rancc, Christmas Day, 11)17. This morning all tho boys In the battery \*ere Issued with socks, cigarettes ami chocolate, aild in the socks that I got, 1 found your name and address, so I'm writing these tow lines to'lliank yon for your kindness. They sure are a dandy pair and just the thing 1 wanted, because 1 lost a lot ot kit when Fritzy dropped a "cough drop" in the dugout we had our things In and what 1 have now tho rats have been after and taken some jt the wool, which 1 guess they think Is very nice for their nests. We had our (Mirlst-mas dinner last night, because some ot the boys had to go up the line today to help to keep the Huns back, and so we had it all together which I think was a\,good Idea. All yesterday some ot the boys were working making tables for the dinner and everything was ready by six o'clock In a big long barn. We had turleey, mashed potatoes, and plum pudding, and later on cigars, nuts and apples. The sergeants waited on us and after the toasts had been made we settled down to listen to the concert. Quite a lot of the boys gave us a song ,or two, others a recitation, and others boxlng> and wrestling. In all we spent a very jolly evening, and finished up by drinking to the health and sucoess of the folks we left at home. Today it IB very co!d and It is snowing, ^ut we don't mind It, because we'll all be home this time next year and the war a thing ot the post. Away ,In the distance you oan hear tho roar and barking ot the guns and trench mortars which tell you that though it is Christmas Day the boys haven't forgotten what they came out to do and are sending Kaiser Bill his Christmas presents which I don't suppose he likes very much. I didn't leave Canada with your home town battery, but from Victoria with another battery which got broken up when we arrived in England, but 1 like this battery fine, as they are a fine bunch ot boys. I came down from the guns a couple of df^ys ago but most likely will be upj tor New Year's and let the boys who are spending today up there down for New Years' day. I hope this finds you in the best ot health and wishing you a happy jiew year._ Your soldier friend, BEUINARD P. BU RROWS. C. P. P. Conybeaip in in Calgary for a few days.
