Dear Son.

     I was very pleased to receive yours of the 31st

I had been waiting most anxiously for a word from you

since Monday. I saw Mr Betts on Monday the

29th + enquired what they had done in regard to

your transfer he informed me that you where still

on offer + they would advise me as soon as they

heard anything. I do not think you seriously

considered the papers received from the Minister of

Munitions on the Thursday before you left but these

where orders controlling the works I did not say anthing

to you at the time of Leaving but the day you left

I had some time with G Cartier + he advised me to

make an appeal to the Minister of Munitions

asking for the return of my Shop Foreman + Tom

Greenwood I did this at once but recieving no reply

up to the 29th  I sent a long wire to the Minister

of Munitions asking for a reply to my letter of the 23d

I received a reply from him next day enclosing two

application forms for the

return of soldiers. These have to be filled in very

clearly stating all the reasons in support of this

application it is possible to give these have to be

taken then to the Local Labor Exchange + they

advise the Minister of Munitions on the matter

who then I assume will use his own discretion

The conditions upon which a man is returned

to his former employment are very Stringent but
