Dear Mr. Irwin.

I am no more in France I am in Engld land now. My adress is as follows:

145375. Lc./Cpl. Louis Norris.

Head Qarters Intelligence Department.

Segregation Camp.


Near Farnham



I do not know how it happened myself it was this way I went on leave to London& went up to see that Russian V.C. which I have been telling you about, he is on the Russian Embassy. The Ambassador happened to see me with the Military Medal ribbon on my chest ofcourse he asked me how I got it and I told him so he told me that I would not have to go back to France again, that he will give me a good job in England. so he did & that is the job he gave me, I like that work it is rather interesting.

How is Karl getting on, I did not hear from him for a long time, I don’t know his real adress, I wrote to his Battalion a few times & did not get any reply. How is everybody at home & how Is everything in Norwood.

I suppose there are not many young fellows left in Norwood as there are quite a few come under the Military Service Act. at present. Is that not so? No doubt you will find a few mistakes in this letter you see I am learning to write on a typewriter, and this is my first day practice, so I think that it is not so bad after all.

I am enclosing two photos of myself, took it in London (nearly broke the camera.)

Well Mr. Irwin. I think that this is about all I ve got to say for just now hoping that this letter will find you in the best of health with rest of family as it leaves me at present.

With best regards for all at home. Mrs. Irwin & family & everybody in Norwood.

I remain Yours

Very Sincerely



Please remember me to the Sunday School.
