Forward My Mail
Good day Post Master; good day Private Wilson; what can I do for you today? You can forward my mail to this address; India! Yes, the orders came and we’re going to India next week. Ah…India, the crown jewel of the British Empire. To be young and going off to an exotic land experiencing wonders of a life time; I envy you boy. Thank you; the Sargent-Major said that we’ll be stationed at the garrison in Hyderabad and our main job is to guard the diamond mines from the Islamic extremists who want to use the diamonds to finance their independence movement. Just be careful out there; and remember that you’re going to an interesting place, you’ll meet interesting people, and you’ll be killing them.
