"PERSONAL NOTES.

Trooper Aubrey Richardson, of a Light Horse regiment, writing from "somewhere in Palestine," to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edney Richardson, Rose Villa, Goodna, says: "I am keeping fit, and seeing things. Please tell the 'Courier' that I received a 6lb. parcel of tobacco, through its splendid scheme, from 'Edney, Goodna,' and the tent is again full of 'smoke' and smiles. We are camped 200 yards from Monty Smith and L. Price (old schoolmates), both of whom are well. They were playing football when we reached here, to the music of shelling Turkish aeroplanes. Have received all parcels, and my mates greatly appreciate the magazines and papers you send us." - The Brisbane Courier 16 May 1918 (nla.gov.au)
