put my division c/o G.P.O. London

Dec. 14th, 1915

Dear Erroll,

I hear the mail may go off tomorrow morning so heres a scrawl to let you know I am on dry land again.

We disembarked yesterday after [illegible] in London over a week and are now about three miles outside Salonika in a camp. Dont know when we start up for the front but hope pretty soon.

Its a great looking town quite the district plan I ever saw but quaint, I hope to go in tomorrow as I want some things. The town is full of Greek soldiers, some of them
