About this object
Postcard from Percy Manson to his mother.

Written while on active service in Palestine and dated 30 April 1917. The letter reads:
Dear Mother,
Just a few lines to let you know I am still alive and keeping in the best of health & hope you are keeping the same. I received a letter from Tot & one from Mabel yesterday & I also received one from Mr Clark. I see now that Papa has died I will have to make out a new allotment as I have decided to make it out in Mr Clark’s name so he can keep the money until my return. I thought at first I would make it out in your name but then I thought it would be too much trouble for you to go down to the Post office & sign it ((?)) How is Walter getting on in camp. I suppose he is getting quite use to it now & plenty of stew. I only wish we would get a little more here at times, but lately our tucker has been fairly good. Well as this PC will not hold any more news I will have to close.
Your loving son
Percy R Manson
