Keep your photo

A soldier serving overseas1 far from home was annoyed and upset2 when his girlfriend wrote breaking off3 their engagement4 and asking for her photograph back. He went out and collected from his friends all the unwanted photographs of women that he could find, bundled5 them all together, and sent them back with a note saying, "I regret that6 I cannot remember which one you are. Please keep your photo and return the others."
