1 January 1916 – Ted to Gertrude

02 Jan

Saturday Jan 1st 1916.


Dear Mother

Just a line to say I’m all right & landed safely. You have probably heard by now we were torpedoed & sank but some of us were saved, only a few I’m afraid, & after a day & a half in boats were picked up by a ship & landed.

Very tired but as fit as a fiddle. We are ashore buying kit as of course we lost everything, just got off as we stood. I don’t know what we are going to do, but I will write you a full account later, but the mail goes tomorrow. Of course the mental & bodily strain has been rather trying & it’s hard to realize; I expect the Censor will see this so I can’t say much. Much love to all & don’t worry.

I cabled you today.


Yr loving son
