France Mar 12/16

Dear Hilda,

A real French Post Card. Arrived here yesterday and am on my way to join a M.T. unit somewhere but dont know where yet. I sincerely hope to have an address soon so that I may hear sometimes from my friends. There has been no Canadian mail for two weeks so we are all looking forward to getting many letters when it comes. This is a glorious day, warm as summer and bright. My small brother is stationed here so I am spending a day with him.
