[On letterhead of the Y.M.C.A. "On Active Service with the British Expeditionary Force".]

Dear Miss King

Am dropping you a few lines letting you know that I have commenced my long journey for home.

I left my Battalion on the 13th of Feb. for a demobilisation camp at Le Havre and expect to be leaving any day for England. I expect to be in England some time before I embark for dear old Aussie but nevertheless I will soon be home. We were very unfortunate not going to Germany, but I think the authorities were wise in not sending us.

I hope you are in the best of health after all the good work you have been doing for the last 4 years and I sincerely hope I return and find you all well and contented.

Best Wishes
Yours Sincerely.
Sgt. R. Otto. 2nd Battalion AIF.
