[written on a German P.O.W. Postcard]

May 19th/18

Dear Mother:-

Rec’d two letters you this morning, also one from Alma. I received the two snaps you sent. They were fine

It has been a lovely day I wish so much I could have been home to enjoy it. Next week will be you birthday “Many returns of the day.”

By the time you receive this letter Alma will be for her holidays. It is nice you can have her home to help you

It is very difficult for me to find anything to write but I am always thinking of you all

Lots of Love to all
