LETTER CARD [postmark and stamp]

Mr. & Mrs. F. Gill
55, Huffin Avenue,
Halton
Leeds
Yorkshire.

[page break]

Woodhall Spa
Feb. 2nd/45.

Dear mum & dad,

Here's just a few lines for now in answer to your letter.

Glad you've heard from Ron & Les I'll bet their meeting will last for a long time in the letters it certainly will have made things brighter for our Ron, I'll be home to see the photo's the beginning of March.

I see in the paper the "Ities" did less work than we did, 200 of them moved less snow in two hours than four British workmen did.

I suppose David will be fed up now the snow has gone, unless his puppy claims all his attention.

Vera and Derek are still O.K. she says the snow put her off, the pram would have been too heavy.

Well that's all I can get on here so I'll say Goodnight & God Bless;

Your Loving Son Ken [kisses] David [kisses]
