Kriegsgefangenenlager
28.8.1944.

Dear Kaye,
The official communique reports still no mail from home, the situation being comprehensible. I have now celebrated my second anniversary, Gosh! How time flies in my embittered memory. Very shortly I think I shall be promenading in those pleasant, country lanes in the serenity of the English countryside, it will be great. A short rest in Germany has cooled my heels and taught me some sense. So long Kaye, till we meet again.

Harold xxxx
