Volume 1: Letters written on active service, A-L, 1914-1919 - Page 448
Dear Mother & Father
Recieved your letter dated 7 June, and was very pleased to hear that you were all well. I am back with the battalion after ten days in Hospital with my tonsils. I had a bad time while they were swollen, but for the remaining five days I was well looked after & had a good time Next time I am near a hospital I will have them taken out
Bye the way I heard Captain Linklater is a prisoner of war. It is pretty correct too
I am feeling tip top and as fit as a fiddle. The allies are going ahead well & if the weather will only keep fine, there will be a big difference in two months. I wish we were moving back to Sydney. I have sent my Medal to Aunt Florrie, as it is too risky to send on to Sydney just yet. Will write again soon.
Hoping you are all keeping well
Heaps of love & kisses
Your loving Son
