Tauranga and Districts WW100 Postcard Competition: Reuben Parekowhai-Gudex

How are you managing without me? Are Eddy and Jim behaving? I've been in war for six months, it's devastating here. Shells land a stone's throw away. The conditions here are miserable. I am knee high in water and nearly all of my comrades are sick with dysentery. God bless you for the gingernuts, my comrades and I are extremely grateful. I'm sorry I've got a limit of time and the officers are checking the letters so I have to finish here. I'm very anxious to see you again. Yours affectionately, Reuben.
