The soldier serving in eastern Asia was annoyed and
upset when his girl sent him a "Dear John" letter, breaking
off their engagement and asking for her photograph back.
The serviceman went out and collected from his friends
all the unwanted photographs of women that he could find.
Then he bundled them all together and sent them back to
the girl with a note saying: "Regret cannot remember which
one is you - please keep your photo and return the others."
