Somewhere in Germany,

Dear Folks,-- Just a line to say I received your very nice parcel which was a very pleasant surprise. It really came in handy, especially here in this war-torn country. It contained all a guy could look forward to and makes one feel more like living to know they are not forgotten over here. I hadn’t received any mail for three weeks but its coming all at once now. I haven’t much of a place to write as I’m lying on a blanket on the ground, which is not so comfortable.

I heard Danny was back home and I’d say he is really lucky—that’s what I’m looking forward to.

Well, I’ll have to scram for now and here’s sending a big “Hello” to everyone, especially to Mom, and tell her I’m in the very best of health. Thanks a million and best of luck. I also received a carton of cigarettes from Robert Blair which was really appreciated.

Your friend,
Cecil Dufty

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.
