postcard; stobs camp; 1914

“Had a spiffing week, enjoying myself up to the mark. Plenty girls in Hawick, but of course I have nothing to do with them. Like Selkirk I would not like to stay here, too dry. This photo was taken after a march, the sun was in my face hence the expression.”

At this time we are not sure which postcard picture should go with this message.
