February 28th, 1943 – Brampton
Dear Mom, Dad,
Just a line to let yous know I got back okay. Boy am I getting it easy this morning, my boy friends and I had to sweep and scrub the orderly room. It took us about an hour and now we’re through for the day but still C.B. if we weren’t I’d get home but I’ll stay and catch up with my sleep and writing and washing. It’s pretty hard to write here there is 2 guys playing the pianos it sounds alright to.
Don’t forget to send the box because I’ll be looking for it and send me a couple of coat hangers that’s what I need the most.
Well I can’t think of much more to say so good-bye for now, see yous all soon. Will write to-morrow.
Lots of Love,
[Shannan note – The photo above is the whole gang – brothers Gerald (Pork), Ray, Gord, and dad Edward… Also, no blog post tomorrow, I’ve got a full day of family ahead. The Oakwood Kid will be back on Monday – see you then! 🙂 ]
