For God For King And For Country With the Canadian Expeditionary Force On Active Service

Canada Y.M.C.A

Sept. 3rd 1918 Cpl. N.W. Thompson #2020414. c/o C.A.G.S Hastings Park Van. B.C.

Dear Fred:-

Received your welcome letter OK & was surely pleased to hear from you. Yes! I guess Roy is in the old country by now, although I havent heard from him, but I know that B.C. Draft 67. got there OK & that was what he was in. He had quite a little stay in Nova Scotia owing to one of the boys getting Spinal Menagitis. Was surprised to hear that Kibbee got $6.00 to spend on the Bear Lake road. I didn't imagine the Government would spend so much money on a side road like that & so little on a main road like the Carribou Rd.

I hope Moore does all right on the Waverley but I guess he will be putting all this year in getting ready. He sure seems to be a good rustler & a good man for the Country.
