Surrounded By Mud

Private M. Timmins, 11th Border, in a letter dated February 21st, says:

Dear Sir,

I am writing these few lines thanking you for the parcel I received yesterday, also “Juno” and the customers of the “Black Cock”, Distington. We are now out of the trenches for a rest a few miles behind the firing line, living in canvas huts in a wood surrounded by nothing else but mud. The Old Toms, pipe and tobacco came in handy, and I divided the cigs between my pals. Again thanking you and wishing your paper every success.
