“Bramshott Camp” Eng.




Canadian Y.M.C.A.


Dear Marie;


Just a line. Am leaving Eng. for Can. on Monday. On board the Olympic Hurrah Five thousand going home, in 1916 we had seven thou five hund on board.


Today I've been bathed, steamed, disinfected & 'fumigated' our clothes. I feel like a rag. The best bath I ever had in my life. There's no such thing as dirt on me. They shot steam and “Anti Flu” dope through a high power jet at us in a closed room for fifteen minutes. So I guess I'm eligiable for Canada now.


Love to all


Lots O' Love


Bro Joe xx


P.S. Sincerely hope you have recovered from the effects of “Flu”.
