Dear Dad and Mam
Just a line to let you know that I am getting on alright and have been discharged from hospital and am at present at a convalescent camp. I hope that you are all alright at home. I may tell you that I am anxiously waiting for a letter from you. It is time I had one now. I hope you are receiving my letters alright. Have written several times. It is very little I am allowed to put in the letter. I hope I will be able to be home for my Christmas dinner this year. Give my love to all. Hoping you are all in the best of health. I am alright, my foot does not spoil my stomach. Give my best love to all. Hoping to hear from you soon.
I am your loving son
He didn’t actually get home for Christmas dinner until 1919.
