24 May 1915 – Gwynedd Russell to Gertrude

24 May


May 24/15.

Dear Mrs Berryman,

I am sure I saw you on Thursday at the meeting at the L.O.F. but when I tried to find you at the end you must have gone! I was so sorry and I wanted to ask after Ted.

We were so sorry to see his name in the Casualty list. I do hope his wound is slight and will cause you no anxiety, but give you the pleasure of having him home.

I suppose everyone at Guildford is nursing. I have not had any opportunity to do so yet but am to start a month’s training in June which I am much looking forward to. David seems very contained at the front and says trench life suits him down to the ground, bar the noise.

Tony is in the 3rd Army so won’t go out for a bit. He turned up today on a motor bike to our surprise and delight, as we have hardly seen him since he joined. Please give my love to Ben and the others. Mother sends her kindest regards

Yours very sincerely
