23 May 1915 – Frances Palmer to Gertrude

23 May


Whit Sunday

Dear Gertrude.

I fear very much it is your dear boy who is reported as wounded. I am grieved to think of your anxiety, but I trust his injury is slight & that he will soon recover from it- & perhaps you will have him at home soon.

We have seen a good deal of young Mr Fisher lately- he has been billeted with a friend of ours, he often spoke of you. I think you must know his people- he has left now for Cambridge.

I have many friends & relations out, & I hear 4 of your boys – are fighting for us – how much you have to think of. We have left this house to Capt Enscombe who is now in command of the anti-aircraft to defend the Castle, he has a very unrestful time during the visits of the King & is called up day & night with warning messages.

Our cottage at Wareham has been let out all winter to a soldier. With our love to you

Believe me

Yr affecte Aunt

Frances Palmer
