Kriegsgefangenenlager
Datum: Sept 16/44
My dearest one, I hope you are well, I am keeping very fit, I am writing this by a flickering lamp so excuse bad writing. Things are moving very quickly these days, all the fellows here expect to be home by Christmas but I can’t imagine the [deleted] bling [/deleted] blinking war ever ending. The nights are drawing in, sorry to see Winter. All my love W.
