I have change address Mum as you will see by the above detail, some address!
We left Winnipeg about a week ago & had a lovely trip down here, they gave us good sleeping quarters & meals & it was an interesting trip as all the country is new to me & the boys are a swell bunch. They have put me in the orderly room typing[?] down here & it should be interesting work, however, I will miss the gang because we have been together since basic, however, I don't know how long I will be there, maybe I might have a chance to work up, who knows
My news will be slight from here Mum as this territory is under strict [?] of my information so you will have to be satisfied with what I can give you.
It was hard leaving Mary naturally & I feel sorry for her rather than myself, however, little Joanie should keep her pretty occupied as she is at the age of "lots of looking after". Well Mum thats all for now & I will be this off to you, also Mum I will enclose a note of thanks to the [?] as I haven't their address.
Lots of love to you all
