10 January 1915 – Paul to Gertrude

10 Jan


Dear Mother.

V. many thanks for your letter. How lovely Ted & Dick coming home & Topher at home- Seems such a pity I can’t get away but it’s absolutely impossible.

Topher writes & says he’s joined in Jim’s Regt. I do hope he will like it & get on well.

Glad to hear Ben is all right again. I enclose some photographs taken when we were off the Dardanelles – they are all much the same & are for distribution amongst the family.

Please thank D for her letter & the sox. I’ll write anon.

I’ve sent you some Gramophone records (2) one organ one called “Evensong” I think you will like awfully.

Must go to bed – It is cold here today.

Very best love – your ever loving son


I forgot to tell you. I saw Digby the other day. He asked very tenderly after you.
