A rather surreal bathing experience.

“Another letter has been recieved by a Horsham man serving with the London Rifle Brigade.

“Dear Mother I am again able to take the opportunity to write a letter... I am still getting along alright but I have a nasty cold so the eucalyptus is very welcome.

“Today we have had a hot bath in tubs in a ruined brewery, during which shells were bursting three or four hundred yards away, it was the most unique bath I have ever had.”
