I found a letter from my Grandpa Sidney William Klus to his sister Elsie.
You'll have to excuse my writing but I just can't quite write quick enough. If you've ever thought of your (tough)? kid brother crying, well if I never do it again I'm really doing it now.
It's pouring with rain but the boys are all singing & dancing outside, the old flares all going up & everybody's going mad. We've just got the news the Japs have packed up and they have just sent the victory signal up. The signal they always send up when a battle's been won. Honest sis I don't know what I'm writing here, I'm going too fast for my thoughts to catch up. Why worry I'll tell you all about it when we have that drink.
Won't be long now.
It's gone all quiet now sis, I guess all the boys are either beginning to write letters or trying to get themselves to believe it's really all over.
When you get home kiss mum for me & tell her I love her, that goes for you Pop Dolly all the family. Gosh what a lucky guy I am all in one piece, & it won't be long before I see the greatest family in the world.
Love you all, Sid
