B Coy Hut 7
South Camp
S.C.D.

Dear Marie,
Thanks for your letter received yesterday, or the day before I am not sure. Well my sojourn at Nigg is near at an end now and I can’t say that I am sorry. Well there has been nothing exciting doing since last I wrote so I don’t think this letter will be long. I will leave here on Thursday and will probably spend the weekend in Dingwall or at least a couple of nights. I hardly fancy starting the back kitchen myself the result might be dangerous to all concerned and I would like to go to Edinburgh for a few days but fares are pretty stiff just now. I am such a restless creature now that I hardly know what to do with myself I don’t know if I told you that I got presented with my Military Medal lately it is a very nice medal, all silver. The flu is going pretty strong down Dingwall way. There are a few cases going from here also. I hope Euphy has not got it. I have not heard from her since a while. I had a letter from Nellie H. tonight usual cheek. Dina is on the fever side now Old Nurse Miklejohn is still going strong. It has been very stormy & cold today & the fire is the best place. There is a chap playing a fiddle just now beside me & I am writing rather hurriedly. We are going to have a dance so mind I am going on Thursday so if you don’t have time to answer at once my address will be at home.
Love from Dodd
