“Just after I had written to say the Hun had not got us yet, he came over & buried us”

Percy Spencer sent his sister a postcard to let her know the Germans had got him at last.

My dear WF

Don’t worry.

Just after I had written you yesterday to say the Hun had not got us yet, he came over & bombed our mess & buried us. I myself escaped with a fractured left wrist & slight scalp wound. I feel quite fine under the circumstances.

Yrs ever
P J Spencer
