My dearest Joan,

I shall be seeing you in a very short space of time. We were relieved by the British Army yesterday, and hope to be sent home in two or three days time.

I am very fit and well and have nothing wrong with myself at all.

There are stories going around that we shall be flown home.

All my love
Wally
