Monday Eve July 7th


Dear Mother & all at home,

Just a few lines hoping they may find you all well at home. Glad to say I am very well at present.

I had a letter from Mary the other day. She says she likes her place allright no doubt she sees more life there than she did at the other place.

I had a letter from Dad, Sid & Ted last week.

Well Mother I must tell you that I am on the move again, we are shifting farther up the line. Don’t worry I shall be allright I will always look after myself wherever I am.  I will write to you as soon as I know my fresh surroundings & will write as often as I possibly can.

Dear Mother I have enclosed a 10/- note as I have no use for it now, use it for something that you like. Hoping that you may get it safe.

Well Mother I don’t think I have any more to say for now, hoping you are all well at home, but for the meanwhile write to me at the same address.

Goodbye for now.

So with love to all the Girls & all & ****

I remain from your loving son  Walter


P.S. for the girls XXXXXXXXXXX


PS I saw Jack Upton here last night he is in the London Scottish (Frank knows him) I was rather pleased to meet someone I know.


Tell Frank to ride the bike & look after it.
