Dear Marie,


Just a few lines to say that I am O.K. as usual, which is not at all important is it to write down. The main thing is that I'm enclosing a photo of Yours Truly which he had had taken while on leave.


I have shaved my moustache off you can see. I'm attempting to grow another one though. Yes! I didn't want to look like a half baked savage, so I shed my fur, for the occasion.


Another very important thing is. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I only wish that I could be able to share in the joys at home with you all. But that is impossible. So I must be content. In any case I suppose we'll be home in three or four months, Just in time for a Summer vacation eh?


Well I'm finished with what I have to say. I'll leave you in peace eh Sis.


Give my love to Aunt Kate & Uncle Henry


Much Love


Bro Joe
