Alfred James White, an ex-serviceman

Alfred James White, an ex-serviceman, writes from 9 Pitt Street, Redfern in 1925: ‘Dear Sir, I now take the advantage of writing to you asking you could you oblige me by giving me some information concerning the canteen funds, how they’ve run out. Also … could you tell me if a soldier had any money stocked on the other side, could he draw that money here? And I would like you to help me if you could as I am in a very bad way just now. I have never had a penny from the military since I came home. So trusting you will try and help me for a quick return; so trusting you will oblige me. I am yours faithfully, AJ White, #2710, 7th Bn., Australian Light Horse.’ (Scarlett, p. 32)
