24 April 1916 – Paul to Gertrude

24 Apr


c/o G.P.O.


Easter Monday.


Dear Mother-

Thank you ever so much for your letter – Easter Card & Handkerchief – I got them on Friday evening – just in time!

We did not exactly have a very cheery Easter – circumstances would not allow – I did’nt have time to change my clothes all day – but I went to Church in the evening – it was Holy Communion – & was for people who had’nt been able to go during the day.

What a blow for Topher – all leave being stopped – & so disappointing.

I hope you all had a very happy Easter at home.

Very best love to you all

Your ever loving son
