Hello dearest was relieved today at I o’clock, was fishing in a lake with a bent pin at the time. Hope to home very shortly. I am very fit and well, have been eating a lot just lately. Cant think of much to say, I guess I am too excited, I’ve gone right off my food. An armoured car came along, gosh were we glad to see it. All my love Walt.
Thanks David - nice to see this piece coming to life again - hopefully others might spot it and add to it.
