Dear Dad –

Arrived in Plymouth harbor after being about a month on the S.S. Tunisian.  It certainly is and interesting sight here though.  It’s a naval dockyard here & there were a lot of Dreadnoughts & cruisers about & in the camp there is Aeroplanes flying over us all day.  lots of rain here.  how is the Printing Trade coming along?  is there lots of work now?  I like it here fine lots of drill though & we have to toe the mark more here than in Valcartier.  I see Hugh every day although he is in another Company.  We get payed in English money and its some job trying to call the different coins the way the Englishmen do.  Well dad I guess I’ll have to close.  hoping your still in the best of health from N.S.
