Dear Mother,
[deleted] indecipherable word [/deleted] As Im [sic] due for a move, I thought I would write a letter to Irene. I want you to save it and if something should happen to me during this war, I’d like you to give it to Irene. It may sound an odd request but I would like you to humour me. Of course I’m not expecting trouble but one never knows.
Cheerio Ma I will write from the next place.
Keep Smiling
Your F. Son.
[underlined] George [/underlined]
Love to All At Home.
