Postcard – Mount Vesuvius

Our infantry really pushed the Gerries last night. They closed in on all sides and they retreated about twenty miles. We passed Mount Vesuvius this morning you could see the smoke rolling out of the top of it. It is a volcano. I could not take a picture as it was cloudy the Jerries are shelling a hill about 1/2 mile from us. we pitched our tent made some apple sauce and fried some spuds. We had no grease so we used lamb oil. It didn’t taste so bad but it was better than “C” ration.
