CAPT. CHARLIE KIBLING, '31, ON RADIO FROM AFRICA
336 Oakland Beach Avenue Rye, New York
This is to inform you that Lieut. Charles A. Kibling, Jr., became a Captain on January 18, and that his correct mailing address is: Capt. Charles A. Kibling, Jr., O-906840, Allied Forces Headquarters, P.W.B., Psychological Warfare, APO 512, c-o Postmaster, New York City. Kindly arrange to forward the Record directly to him because I have failed in my attempts to re-route the publications to him due to postal regulations forbiding individual mailing of printed matter to those in service. I am sure that Kib would be pleased to receive the invaluable personal news of his fraternity brothers of Norwich contained in the Record.
We were fortunate in hearing Kib each evening on the air over Allied Forces Headquarters when he would contact New York and read the press dispatches as well as put the news commentators on for Mutual Broad-casting, NBC and Columbia, as well as the OWI. However, it seems that he is in command of all such stations for North Africa now, since which appointment he speaks over AFHQ only infrequently.
In his letters he hasn't spoken of meeting any of the Norwich boys in North Africa, so if possible, I am sure he would delight in receiving some of the past issues of the Record in which there is mention of the boys being in the war theatres. Kindly inform me by return mail of the expenses incurred by this additional mailing, and I shall mail my continuance of the Record at our home address for personal reference and ask that you include fees to cover same. I personally congratulate the editors of the Record for the grand job they are doing with these interesting and informative bulletins, and I can well appreciate what they must really mean to the boys in the service.
