[letterhead: "A PLACE TO GO" SPORTSMEN'S PATRIOTIC ASSOCIATION SOLDIER'S CLUB 229 DUNDAS STREET MAJESTIC THEATRE BLDG. PHONE 338 LONDON CANADA]

3/ Persy Foster runs a good stunt. He has a motor cycle, and gets a midnight pass on Saturday or Sunday, and starts for home at noon and can go out in an hour, & comes back before midnight. He has it stored in a barn near here.

I don't know when we are going to get our colors now, but expect it will be before long.

I was glad to hear you were through seeding for I thought some of it would never be put in.

I hope you conveyed my thanks to the Red Cross for I tried out a pair of those socks and they are by far the best I have had on yet. Cecil Evans, and Dave got home on special pass as they were Foresters.

Major Carllton has been taking a course for three weeks, but is with us again, he started this morning. There is a great deal of studying to be done.

Well so long for the present, Love to all. How is Jessie coming on.

Your loving brother Oliver.

CANADA THE 135th Canadian Battalion CARLING HEIGHTS CAMP LONDON, CANADA

A.M. Reg. no. 57,231

[right column printed card] From One of The Bunch

I am sending you our Battalion Card For a letter this time instead. We are drilling all day good and hard And at night we are ready for bed.

Our Battalion is a good bunch of boys, Always ready for a lark or a joke; You hear funny sayings of things they do With their pay, and how some go broke.

I am feeling alright and ready to go, And our boys all feel the same; We will get those Huns upon the run And spoil their nice old game.

So I hope that you and all of yours Are in the best of health. The other things I wish to you Are Happiness and Wealth.

Hello Sis

Just a line to let you know that Harvest Furlough is cut off for the 135th. A few battalions have been officially warned to be ready to sail overseas by Aug 1st. The 135th is one of them and we are rejoicing. The 125th & 134 (Dan McLean's Batt. go also.) Jack was going to write father for a letter to go on harvesting furlough but he won't now. He is home on his last leave now. We get off next week. Love to all

Yours affect. Oliver
