Letter from Alfred Forbes Johnson to his wife Essie, 8th July 1918.
The land is covered in poppies and corn flowers and all sorts of wild flowers. It is very different from what it was like in the winter.
I went down to some sports yesterday. They tried to get me to run an officers obstacle race but when I saw the first obstacle, climbing up a 20ft rope to get over a pole, I decided my running days were over.
