maybe sooner, no matter where I'm going tomorrow.

I was at the movies when they called for me--didn't know about it until 9 o'clock--had been at the library from 8 to 9--when I entered the barracks & one of the boys said, I think you're on a draft; they've been calling for you to report to the draft shed. Did I hurry up to that shed!

Will be awakened at 3 a.m., eat at 5 am, muster in the 3rd batt. at 6 am & another muster in the main draft shed at 7 am (where last minute scratches are made & transportation outwards bound provided).

Loads of love to you & Rema & Ada--Be of good cheer. I'll be with you soon.

Irv
