Reg sent this card from Colchester on 26 May 1916 to his Mother, Mrs Bacon, who was staying with Mrs Mills at 83, Colne Road, Brightlingsea, Essex. Reg writes:
My Dear Mum
I thought I should have been able to leave here tomorrow (Sat.) but find I shall have to stay on until Monday anyhow.
I do not think it is worth while coming over to see me as I hope to have a week’s holiday after this which I should like to spend with you at Brightlingsea or else at Thetford.
What do you think?
I am glad you have found suitable rooms & hope you will enjoy your holiday.
The picture on this postcard can be seen here. I wonder if Reg is in the group.
