Dearest,

Just returned to Camp this very minute after having travelled some 600 miles.

I must admit my camp room looks and feels quite comfy, after such a long ride.

I am now a full fledge member of Wales most famous Regiment The Royal Welsh Fusilliers.  I was initiated on St. David’s day.  Attended one of the year’s best banquet, was called on to answer the toast to Canada, received a great ovation, before and after the speech.

It is now 1245 hrs, and now ready for bed.

Will write you tomorrow Sending June cards of the place.

Lots of love

Daddy
