A Transcription of the letter is :

Could you supply me with any information that would help me to communicate with my brother Andrew Collins who enlisted either in Broken Hill or Adelaide and was in camp at Mitcham South Australia. Following is the information which I can supply you with to trace him. He enlisted in 1915 and left 1915 and was attached to the 3rd Light-Horse 13th Reinforcements. Was known to be Sergeant and believe he left Australia as Lieutenant. Also believe he married in Adelaide after enlistment.
Personal discription (stet) born Delegate Monaro NSW 1891 or 1892 about 5 ft 9 in in height and fair complexion and was a miner by occupation.
It is important that I should be able to communicate with he or his wife and would be much obliged if you would supply address
I remain Yours Faithfully
