WW1 postcard sent to Walter and Lizzie Shoesmith from nephew Harold.

Written on the back:

Dear Walter and Lizzie,
Just a few lines hoping this will find you in the best of health as it leaves mine in the best of health. Well I had a letter from father and mother a day or two ago and they said you had got to go on the 29th of this month. Well Walter if you have to go watch your pals. I have found out from best pal will turn on you. But make the best of it while you are at home before you have to come up. We are having some nice weather just now. I am as brown as a berry. I am sending you a p c I think you will know who is on they are not such good ones. But I will write you a letter this week. I am still confined to camp yet and we are getting fed up of having to keep in camp.
From your ever loving nephew Harold.
