Talk by Corporal Lindsay Blackwood of Hamilton:-

"Our Christmas dinner in New Caledonia was great, as good as the average one in New Zealand. Christmas carol services were held. The climate is warm and mosquitoes can be a nuisance. Bird life is scarce, the most common being the black crow. The food is good but fresh meat and
vegetables are not always available. We spend most evenings studying and writing letters. Bridge and housie evenings are held. Twice a week we go to a picture show and sometimes we visit the District YMCA".

He sends greetings from Doug Smith, Gunner Anderson and Don Mawhinney and sends greetings to his own wife and family.
