Amongst the letters received by relatives from released prisoners of war is one from Private W. Marstin, who has reached Singapore. He writes cheerfully: “I am pleased to say I came through very well, considering though we are 3 to 4 stone underweight. The food is getting better so we should soon pull up. We are in hopes of being in Australia about the end of the month. The McLeish boys are well. We are all anxiously waiting for news from home; the last I had from you was at the end of 1943, We are all looking forward to a great time when we get home, and am hoping the beer rationing is lifted. It would not take much to make us “full” at present. When I get back I am looking forward to a good holiday. I have 4 stone to make up. Remember me to all in j Barcaldine and elsewhere.”

Michael died on 04/07/1953 in Rockhampton.
