Dear Father,                  Priv E. Bridgement       
Just a line to let               602 Pioneers 30th Batt.
you know that I am in     8th Brigade AIF Egypt  
the best of health &            9 Jan 1916                  
I hope it leaves yourself & all at home the same. 
We are having very dirty weather over here         
at present,. The sand would cut your eyes out.      
I wrote you a letter & Postcard last mail, so I       
have know[no] news to tell this time. I believe       
they have Conscription in England if it his[is]       
true it may make the single men in                         
Australia enlist better. Soldiering his[is] a              
very healthy life. I suppose Cyril Harper's              
wife soon be with us. Casey Mitchell                       
wishes to be remembered to you and shall              
have the Mascot. Well Dad I will write a                
letter next mail. So I will close with the                  
very best of love, from your ever loving son Ted.
