M.J. Mendelsohn Second World War correspondence

He was assigned to heavy gun outfit, "which is the worst outfit to be in (they die rather quickly)."
At the end of the letter, Pvt. Mendelsohn tells them "Funny I never realized how important a letter is to a serviceman, it gives him courage and we certainly need it."
