      Just a few more lines in answer to your letter of Sept 15th received 28th Sept
      I am writing this note at the bangkok airport we came here this morning and we are flying to Singapore tomorrow, so I don't think it will be long now before I am home again, rumour has it that we may fly to Australia since we have been free I have written about 7 or 8 letters to you, also sent 2 cables, it seems that you have not received them, the power to be don't seem to know what they are doing so far we have not received a single thing from the Australians all we have is what the English have given to us, I haven't got any boots et.
      (We may be home for Xmas) I'm pleased to hear that Mum seems to be a little bit better, have you told her about me?
      Things are going to seem very strange to me at home. I did-not knowRath Jarvis was married, your Loving Son Harry.

      IMPERIAL JAPANESE ARMY.
      I am still in a P.O.W. Camp near Moulmein, Burma, There are 20,000 Prisoners, being Australian, Dutch, English, and American. There are several camps of 2/3000 prisoners who work at settled labour daily.
      We are quartered in very plain huts. The climate is good. Our life is now easier with regard to food, medicine and clothes. The Japanese Commander sincerely endeavours to treat prisoners kindly.
      Officers' salary is based on salary of Japanese Officers of the same rank and every prisoner who performs labour or duty is given daily wages from 25 cents ( minimum ) to 45 cents, according to rank and work.
      Canteens are established where we can buy some extra foods and smokes. By courtesy of the Japanese Commander we conduct concerts in the camps, and a limited number go to a picture show about once per month.
      Love to all at home. Hope you are all well, as this leaves me. Don't worry, loving son and brother, Harry
