 Page 4 Egypt, as there is a rumour that we will

be leaving soon of but I don't know wherefor.
        I don't want to spend the summer

here as I think it is awfully warm and full

of sand storms.     Everywhere is full of sand

and the fellows say there is sand to the

right of us, sand to the left of us, sand in

front of us and Heliopolis behind us. 
      I don't think I have any more to write

at present so I will draw to a close. 
            With best love to all
                  From your loving Son
                                     Tom. 

My address is
           Private T Noonan
