HMT Dorsetshire farewell card (undated)

ship with statue of wellington on one side, haifa on other.

Reverse reads:

Dear Mum and All,
Just a few lines before I go away to thank you for the parcel which I received this morning.
Well I don't think I have told you all I can for the present but will write when I get there or maybe on the boat.
Cheerio,
Love to All.
Your loving Son and Brother, Eric.
PS Don't worry.
