Kriegsgefangenenlager
Datum March 17/44

My dearest Joan, I hope you are OK and are now a mother, I shall be pleased to hear. I have had one letter this month, from you. I am keeping very fit, have been playing football today and am pretty tired. Have given up bookeeping [sic] and gone back to salesmanship, I found I couldn't concentrate. Have been playing football and am pretty tired, going to bed. All my love Walk.

Kriegsgefangenenlager
Datum March 25/44

My dearest Joan, I received two letters today, one the third of January and the other the 17th. I am pleased to hear you are well. I shall be glad when I hear that the baby has been born all right. Today has been really marvellous weather, it makes every one very optimistic. When do you reckon the war will end, I hope its this year. All my love Walt.
