Dear Helen

Well here's that man again with a few more lines to say hello and how are you. Oh yes, and I hope that you are not working too hard.

At last I am back where we can at last speak to the civilians without a five year sentence looking you in the face. For the time being I am having a little rest in a hospital at Nymegen[?] It is not a bad city but it took quite a beating. All through the winter I was stationed about 30 miles from here in a small village and it was while living there that I thanked my stars my home was in Canada. The people have no culture and are so far behind in their ways. I think you will see quite a change take place over here.

I have been trying to find out where Sim's outfit is. It should be around here somewhere. I wrote him last night so might see him one of these days.

We have had some real weather here of late. Makes me wish I was home on the golf course. Have you ever played the game?

Well here I am coming near the end of the line so will close off for now. Waiting and hoping I hear from you soon.

Bye for now

Sincerely

"Penny"

p.s. Sorry I have no stamps.
