A French made embroidered silk card sent from France by Oz to Myrtle, 10 May 1916.
Just a few lines before I stumble into bed. We are at present out of the trenches. I have not very much to do & have a fairly quiet time. We go to bathing parades about four times a week. You can imagine how nice it is having a hot bath & a clean change of underclothes so often especially after the peninsula.
We get the English papers here every day & are well posted with news. Excuse anymore at present dearest hoping you are well, also all out your way.
