Give me England! Things are just the same here as they were thousands of years ago. Everything is carried on donkeys – no carts; and in the villages there is no attempt at sanitation. “So far things are passable out here. Of course, things are a trifle rough, but we must expect that. One chap mentioned butter the other day, and I had to scratch my head and wonder for a minute. I have some faint recollection of it. We get plenty of jam and bully-beef. Just now we are doing very well for bread; in fact, there is very little to grumble anyhow. “I saw here to-day that I only saw once all the time I was at Lichfield, but I knew him again in a minute. It was Lord Kitchener; you see I am not the only big man about these parts. Joking apart, the great soldier seems to have a look on his face that indicates something going to happen. I was surprised to see him here. There is something in the wind, and we may expect to see things go with a rush. “I can’t tell you anything about the war, I never mention it, then I keep clear of the censor’s big blue pencil. While I have been writing this I have got two letters from home, so the most cheerful man in this tent is, yours sincerely, F. Ingall” Obituary notices published 18th November 1916 in the Nottingham Evening Post :- “INGALL. – Died of wounds, November 1st, Rfn. F.
