A letter to a family member from Adam Sobczyk reveals two interesting items.  First, the censor, 1/Lt Harold Martin, let the location of Northern Ireland slip through and, secondly, it is quite clear that Adam was not happy with the local weather.

Dear Lil,
  I received your very welcome letter a few days ago and was very glad to get it.

   Well I hope you're well and over your cold by the time you get this letter and I hope I'm over my cold by that time too.  It's going to be pretty hard for me to get rid of mine because of the weather.  The weather is actually


horrible.  One minute its raining, the next minute the sun shines then it snows and then it hails and it just keeps on like hat all day.  I'll be glad to get home to have little more certain weather.  As for the countryside its really beautiful and I mean beautiful.  .  I have never seen such beautiful country in all my life.


When I get back from the army I'll make a good wife for somebody. I do washing, cook & keep house.  Now I realize what a job it is.  When I get back I'll help my mother always without my mother even asking me.

Well I'll close for now hoping to hear from you soon.  Give my love to all the rest of the family.

Love, Adam
