21 May 1915 – S M Campbell to Gertrude

21 May


My dear Mrs Berryman,

I was very sorry to see your Ted’s name in the Casualty list yesterday but very thankful it was not in the first part of the list. The only time lately when there has been freedom from acute anxiety has been when our nearest relations have come home wounded.

One alas returned wounded for a blissful month with his young wife & was killed in the landing of troops in the Dardanelles. I do hope Ted is not badly wounded. Is he in Hospital or have you got him with you.

I expect you are most desperately taken up with your works for sick & wounded as well as with your other manifold interests. Are Richard & Paul doing their bit somewhere.

My brother Archie has been a prisoner at CelleHanover since August & had a rotten time for months. Things are rather better now. The elder brother Col. has an ammunition column somewhere in France.

Yours very sincerely

S.M Campbell.
