Dear Mum and All,

Am now back at Stalag and like it much better than the last place. Came here Friday. Am at same fort as Bill Smith and two others from the same gang are here too. Saw good concert last night - good dance band. Have just come back from communion - my first since March 40. It's grand to have a REAL service again with a padre.

Love to all
