Transcript of Postcard From Australia to the Bell Inn, Stoke Mandeville

Postcard found in the possessions of EE Clipson
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Addressed to Mr Arthur Wooster, Bell Inn, Stoke Mandeville, Aylesbury, Bucks, England.
Postcard of Native Bullock Cart, Ceylon and posted in Australia.

Dear Arthur and Ede,
We are getting near our destination now. This is a typical picture of what we saw in Ceylon, had a 3 hour drive round the different native villages. They have oxen to draw the carts about here, horses in the carriages. There were in some parts, coach painters, Builders yards and Smiths shops, in fact we could have got a job ourselves, as they wanted carpenters, it was posted up on the gates, did not think anything about it as it is such a hot climate. There is a large Liptons tea factory. Mostly natives work there. The people are only half dressed, but it is a lovely place. Hope you are keeping well. We are A1, it has been very hot through the tropics. We are 9 days between Colombo and Freemantle, nothing but water did not even see another boat. Love to all Yours Jim.
