Kriegsgefangenenlager

Datum: 17TH DEC. 1944.

My Darling Wife, The mail issue has just arrived and, as I’ve just partook of a fairly good dinner, thought I would drop you a line whilst it digests. How are you getting along now darling. I’m afraid this ill fortune has put our long awaited date even further away, but I’m still looking forward to being not too far distant. Must close once again beloved. All My Love Your Eric xxxxx
