Dear Mom + Dad

Just a few lines to let yous know I’m okay and hope yous are all the same. There is a lot of talk about getting our passes [1] on Wed night so you can send me a bit of change.

Well I haven’t any more time, I have to go now. I’ll write a longer letter to-morrow so long for now.

The East Kid
Major Gordon.


[1- Shannan Note: I suspect when Gord mentions passes, he’s talking about tickets home for a furlough…The tickets in the picture above were just one old treasure from an old sweets box full of bits a pieces that he had either brought with him, or sent home.

Also, I am working on getting all of Gord’s details down in one place. After 3 days of photo, paper, and document sorting, I have amassed a great little collection of details for much of his family, and some newly discovered details on Gord as well. More details on these little life maps coming soon.]
