Mail ends silence of two months

Mrs. E.P. Morin of Lindsay, Ont., received word from her husband, who is a Prisoner-of-War in Germany, today for the first time in nearly two months. The letters were dated the 1st of Oct. and Nov. 5. In his first letter he stated that the Germans had just brought in some new prisoners and he was talking to one of them. S|Sgt. Morin said that the soldier with whom he was speaking, was from Lindsay and that his name was King. He also stated that he met some other fellows from around this district.

In the letter dated November 5, he stated, "I have received 5 letters from you today, and was very happy to hear that Eddie Jr. and you were doing fine. Things haven't been going so well around here for the past two weeks, as we have not received any Red Cross parcels and no cigarettes."

S|Sgt. Morin was taken prisoner in Italy on May 24th at the Anzio Beachhead, while serving with the First Special Service Force, a combination of United States and Canadian Paratroopers.
