Just to let you know I am getting along fine and there is no need to worry. Getting the best of care and able to get out and around. I was out on a walk this morning and I sure had a good appetite when we got back in. We had our first bit of snow yesterday. Just a bit of a flurry. It is very lively scenery around here and puts me in mind of home with its wooded valleys and hills.

- This card is part of a larger collection of World War II personnel clippings. The project began in 1944 at the Lindsay Library. The intent was to gather together as much information as possible on the military record and the service of people from the Town of Lindsay and the County of Victoria (now Kawartha Lakes)who served in the war. To that end, during the years 1944, 1945, and 1946, members of the public donated photographs and updated information about their loved ones. Both library staff and the public saved and donated newspaper clippings. Some of the files contain great amounts of detail, while others have just a name.
