Byron Armbruster World War II Papers: Transcripts - MS 984
15 Dec. '43
Dear Folks -
Mail has been light the past week, for everyone. I haven't received but only a letter or two, within the last five days. Whats the matter? Write often, if you find time. Please inform the North-west News to use my current address. They always omitt the first part of address and the paper is always so old, by the time it reaches me. I received one tomto dated Nov. 4th.
I should write Kenny more often, but I haven't anything much to tell, so please forward all news.
We are having about the same weather here that I imagine you folks are having, only maybe not so much snow. We had a few flurries but they didn't last long. Can you imagine sleeping out in a tent, now and then? I do hope this thing ends soon, altho I consider myself very fortunate. We have a lot of fun mixed in.
Will close, and as an Englishman would say, "Cheerio" I've never heard one say good-bye.
Wishing you all a very, very Merry Christmas. Are you having a get together this Christmas?
Dec. 23, 1945 [1943?]
How nice it is when you are so far away to have friends think of you. when we know our friends are still with us it is much easier. Where ever we go or where we are there is nothing like a friend to help you along. So thanks a lot for the very pretty Christmas Greetings. It does not look much like a white Christmas here. If it keeps on raining it will be mud. I do hope you folks had a Merry Christmas. So I will wish you a Very Happy New Years.
From Great Britain
