Tauranga and Districts WW100 Postcard Competition: Ainsley Osborne

To my dearest darling wife Jean. I am sorry I haven't sent you anything. I have been fighting the Turkish forces. I don't like it here. Last week Joseph was shot, we had to bury him. Joel and I miss him lots and lots. John has been sent back to his home in NZ, can you ask him to come to our wedding? Thank you for my mittens and socks, can you tell our children I enjoyed my biscuits and I shared them with Joel and mates. The Turkish keep bombing the ocean, I guess they thing we are still in the ocean washing up. Our orders were changed at the last minute, we were gonna go to France but instead we went to Gallipoli. We ended up on a cove where there are masses of Turkish soldiers. Anyway, thank you for packing my favourite teddy Oscar. I miss you. I will be back soon. I love you with all my heart, Melville.
