Dear Sister,

Thanks for your

letter which I received Friday,

I am sorry to hear Will

as got some more papers, I

only hope he can keep clear

of the army, nobody knows

what its like only those

that are in it, you have

to be on ever parade + all

cleaned up first thing in

the morning, when he goes

up if they ask him to

go in a labour battallion

or try to put him in one


..Page number 2

tell him to say he would

be more use in a munition

factory, because if he once

gets in the army they will

keep him on odd jobs & its

hard to get your ticket,

Well sister remeber me to

mother + father + Let, I will

close with love to all good

night & God Bless you,

I remain

Your loving

xxx     Brother
