[written on a German P.O.W. Postcard, addressed to: “Mr Geo Gale” from: “Gunner George Flewelling”]

Friedrichsfeld, 20th July 1918

Dear Sir,

Would like to know if you could tell me anything about your son Ralph, who was with me in captivity for a year and a half. He left our detachment for another in the spring, and I have never heard of him since. Do you hear from him? If so, is he well? We were captured the same day.

Yours Sincerely,
Geo. Flewelling.
