The letters stop the light of life is extinguished, a name on a list and a the father, son and husband is snuffed from the family. The measure of this loss can never be conveyed. May he rest in peace and thank you to his family for sharing the letters.
Lest we forget
it is a good read.
It is perhaps a pity that some of the letters and replies from his loving family to him, which he refers to often, have not survived to give an account of the War from their perspective.
I found myself there with the all in the trenches and felt personal involved.
His little drawings made me smile so much.
You can feel the love he had for his wife, son, mother and mother in law, as well as the worry and fear for them.
Everyone should read this book, not just those with an interest in war, as it gives you a real, true insight into what was suffered in the trenches. Not just the fear of war and dying, but also fear and worry for those left behind at home.
