Corporal Pickthall
Military Hospital, Knutsford, Cheshire
Dear Mrs Owtram,
Just a line to thank you for your kind letter and parcel which I received on the 29th Oct. I was very pleased to hear that Captain Owtram is still safe. We were back in the same Company, I think in a few weeks I will be fit to come home, but I donít think I will ever be fit for active service again as I have a ? foot now.
I remain yours truly
Corporal Pickthall 3092
