who married Dr Norman Robertson of [indecipherable] has been in – they rather bore one – can't write or sleep but must talk –
well mother I'm truly thankful to be alive I'm not religious but I do recognize I must be protected by some higher hand - & it is you no doubt praying for me in Australia helps – This war should be about over surely by the time I join in again.
Electric fan is buzzing & clean sheets – flowers & music – everything a man could wish for – the Turks were indeed good to me to send me here – Now in a big building Napoleon built for his soldiers long ago at ABBASSIINA
The papers will tell you about the fight but the Light Horse did it – it was their day out.
Goodnight & all my love to you at home – from your loving son
