Here is one for you LB, just found it in a box last night. It is a nice cream but I had to adjust the contrast to see the watermark.

Really enjoy reading the letters..

"Rode in the first class car with only 3 men"  and the amenities at the "camp" a PX, swimming pool, bowling alley and places to eat" 

Classic stuff..
