Dear Mother
I came here by train from No 6 Conv. Depot on Thursday. This is a much more comfortable place than No 5. The food is more plentiful and it is much warmer, – it is a French holiday resort (in peace time) on the sea coast. I shall send you some P.C.s of the place if it is allowable. I shall be here six weeks, possibly a little longer. Then I shall go to the N.Z. base depot. I have got no mail from anyone, not even from Trot or Charlie. This shifting around interferes with correspondence a good bit. I have been knocking around a good bit with a chap named Thomas from Pukekohe who knows Mac.
A happy Easter

Yours Neil
