Dear Mother & Father,
I'm still at the replacement depot in Germany. I'll probably leave any day now.
I've been on the move so much in the last couple of weeks that I've been unable to write a letter of much detail. I had an opportunity to visit a large town when I was in France. The French are very friendly. In this town, business at gone back to normal and the people seemed t have thrown of the weight of the past grim years. The only thing that reminds one of the war here is the wreckage of the bombed buildings. These people - women and children - must have endured many terrifying moments. Will write soon, Love, Harold
