Dear Mother & Dad:

Greetings from the Old Country - and how are you.

Met some of the first Canadian contingent - great hulking lot.

Had dinner last night with officer in the Coldstream Guards and a Lieut. Vivien R.N. - grand types.

This blackout in London is a blackout - they mean it evidently.

I cam back alone, not with my old establishment - if you know what I mean.

Anyway, its dear old London or England I hope for Christmas - but who knows.

Very sorry that none of the family were here to be surprised - some people have all the luck.

Will give you my new address soon.

Love to all the family
