Newth, Frank F. (Frank Forrest), 1895-1979
Nick is working in the subsistence department of the quartermaster corps; they are in charge of all of the food. There are only a few men in the department so they are very busy and his spells of loneliness are short. They are far enough from the front that they do not hear the roar of guns but there are airplanes flying overhead frequently. He has heard that engineers from a camp came in the other night, and he wondered if Bill is on his way across. The name of the camp has been cut out by censors.
