Dear Mother

Just a card to say I have gone up the line today so my old address will find me there. The weather is very hot. It is just like the summer. No more at present.

Your loving son

According to the Batt diaries (referenced in Major John George Brew’s story), this postcard was written near Ypres, just before the Battle of Messines, which started on 7 June.
