Transcript from the back of the postcard:
Bells Paddock, 41st Battalion. A Company. My Dear Brother, Just a post card to let you know I am well. We are leaving on the eighth of the month for lord only knows where. We have not had any drill yet, so it will be a few months before we see the firing line. Charley Williams is down here in camp. I will send a photo of myself before I go. This postcard of our battalion leading on Anzac Day, six thousand marching. There is a lot of Mackay lads in the hut. I ...(?) will now conclude, hoping this will find you well, as it leaves me. I remain, your affectionate brother, Earl.
