Hello you beautiful girl!
This is brother Bill celebrating "V" day with the British Pacific Fleet.
I think your brother would rather be climbing lamp posts in Picadilly, but I'm not sure.
How is your sun tan coming along this year? You want to get some sea time in.
As my Canadian friend Sweezie said this morning, "Canada - a great country bounded on the west by the Pacific and on the east by 2 million Frenchmen."
