1944: Forces Christmas Greeting
Sent by Norman Wheatley, the message has some parts deleted
by the censors, it reads :
"Dear Mrs ?
Just a few lines to let you know we arrived all right. The
trip over being ok, no enemy action at all. We are under canvas at present
--------- Myself & a few more of the men spent the day at the docks
unloading the boat, working all night with meals on board ship, working in
shifts with men from other sections --------- Give my love to Tom & May, a
few xxx for Michael & David. I do not know when I shall be able to get my
snaps but will send some home when I do, remember me to all at the garage ?
Love to all, Norman"
