Kriegsgefangenenlager

Datum: 25th Jan ‘45

Dear Mum, Dad & Fmly, [sic] The most important news is that today after a lapse of 5 weeks, I have received 6 letters dated Oct-Nov. 3 from you, Doris & twins, 2 from Herons, & 1 from Mr Devonshire, none from Pat I’m afraid. It’s brightened up my day a thousandfold to get some mail. These past few weeks have been drudgery for me, the parcel situation is still bad, you mention making a big cake for homecoming, well you better use an outsize dustbin for a baking tin! Never mind perhaps all this will end soon, and then I will make up for lost time. Cheerio now, Love to all,

[underlined] Reg [/underlined]
