LETTERS HOME - Index

Letters written by servicemen to their families, or directly to the newspaper were a popular item in the press. (There were also many one-two liners about which man had arrived where.) In spite of the harsh conditions and the epidemic, you'll find no complainers - with the exception of those wanting more mail from home!

Copies of the following letters can be secured from Bill W., read what your ancestor or relative had to say!
