    Translation
    • Pionier Faltbootwerft [Pionier Shipyard for Collapsible Boats] Mr. Oskar Speck No. 64, Int. Comp. 140 Loveday South Australia 16.8.43 Dear Mr. Speck, Today we received your lines from Loveday and are sad to hear that your life there isn’t as good as it was in Tatura. But, we are pleased to hear that you are in good health and that you are not that nervous anymore. We, too, would prefer to resume manufacturing our beautiful tents and collapsible boats again for the pleasure of aquatic sportsmen all over the world, instead of all kinds of other equipment. But who knows how long this [censored].Still, keep your chin up. Kind regards, Your Old Pionier Faltbootwerft Signatures
