Dec. 14, 1943

Col. Hunter visited me this a.m. They are x-raying me here and shortly will send me to Naples XIV C.G.H. (14th Canadian General Hospital). I will probably work there until the draft returns to England. Expect to visit the Isle of Capri when there. Am being used sweet here so far, am perfectly happy.

Likely the Bailey bridge erected over the Sangro River in Italy. Alexander family collection.
