saying that they will compete against any soldiers in the world so thats saying something. Australian people can be proud of their sons. They undoubtedly accomplished the impossible. Well Mother & family I hope you get this alright. I always told you that if my time had come I would get hit, but it evidently hasen't come as I am very much alive. I will know this week what is too be done with me, I have to go before the board for medical examination too see if I am still fit to go back to the trenches, if not they will send me home. I will wish you all good luck & take care of yourself & don,t worry, Give my love to all. I am always thinking of you good bye & God bless you all
I am, Yours
