Veteran: William McLeish
Artifact: A letter from the Canadian Red Cross Society to Miss N. Watson.
I am in receipt of your letter re: Pte. McLeish who is now at the following address:
Pte. Mr. McLeish 24446.
13th Royal Highlanders of Canada,
Lager 2, Block 4., K. 29.
(the next two lines are faded)
And we have never as yet received any word from him saying that he has been ill.
His last P.C. to us is dated 23/12/17 which runs as follows:
"I thank you most sincerely for the food packets which arrive every week. I am well pleased with content - contents. The Bread from Berne is also O.K."
Of course, being on a Working Party makes it more difficult for the men to write. I sincerely hope that this information will relieve you somewhat of your anxiety ,and that you will soon receive good news from him.
