New Caledonia 1944

“Dear Omes,

I haven’t written for a long time, but Milly writes about you and she probably tells you about me. Nothing important has happened to me although we have had a very fine time while we were out of the fighting for a rest.

I want to thank you very much for your Christmas gift and card. A lot of things came in and it’s nice to know that people back home are thinking about you.

That was quite a shock you had when Magnus passed away, I know, but I’m glad that you were there to help Milly and Hada over that bad time.

I hear occasionally from Beany and Cliff. There is even a possibility that I may see Cliff someday. He isn’t that far away right now. Of course down here we speak of a thousand miles as a short distance. Wish I were home.

Always, Lorne”
