For God For King and For Country Canada Y.M.C.A. With the Canadian Expeditionary Force On Active Service

I hope they don't take the hospital away from Barkerville. It doesn't employ many nor doesn't accommodate some many but it is always a home for the boys who get cut or hurt & haven't any home to go to & also it's kind of a landmark, a relic of better days.

I guess Roy is in Eng. by now.

Things are kind of quiet here at present. A few men left here awhile ago to make up a part of a small draft from Victoria & then a few more went away on "farm leave" so we haven't any men here at present.

We got moved back from Westminster to Hastings Park since the Exhibition is over but we are not settled yet. I guess we will have to move our quarters tomorrow. They are fixing up a couple of rooms for the C.A.G.S.
