Sent from Brocton Camp, England. Dated October 14, 1917.
Message reads: Dear Mrs Brady, Just a short note to let you know I have not quite forgotten you and that I am in the best of health as I hope you are. I am having a good time here plenty of drill to keep us from getting into mischief. The food here though scarce is superior to what we got in New Zealand. I suppose Jim told you about the Clive boys I saw. We are camped on the top of a hill and the weather is none the best, very cold at nights and rain all day. Well Mrs Brady there is nothing much to write about here so I will close. Wishing you all the compliments of the season from yours sincerely, Jim Hellyer (James Hellyer, New Zealand Rifle Brigade)
