Hi Willy,

Since 1 year is gone, that I receive your letter, it would be interesting for me, what time you and Waldemar had often I must think on our time together in Vienna. Here is a another man, he also was in Schanzenbergplatz 13 ( = vienna / i think a common place )

All good to you, neck + leg fracture (means good luck )

Your fellow Helmut

In 1984, the new formed Tatura & District Historical Society identified the seven World War Two POW and Internment camps in the Tatura district of Victoria as being of significant historical importance for the district. The Society opened the Bill Doller Room in 1991 to house their collection on these camps.
