Introduction

Dearest Victoria, These last two months without you have been awful. We found out yesterday that the final attack is to be tomorrow, but I don't wish for you to worry, the stress is no good for you or the baby and you must stay strong for the children and reassure them I will be fine. All of the men are starting to get nervous now, except for a few of the newer men who are slightly too enthusiastic, but I'm sure that will all soon change. Most of the men know what is likely to happen to us when we go out onto the front line tomorrow; only a few days ago four soldiers and an officer were killed whilst making a raid. ...read more.

Middle

It was a terribly awful way to die and for all we know he could still be out there and probably is. I'm so afraid it is going to happen to me. It just shows you how anything can happen out here. Of course the Colonel and Sergeant Major didn't give a damn about any of the men that died; all they cared about was getting information about that poor German boy. He was only about 17 and he looked scared to death. I'm sorry to go on but I'm just thinking of all the things I still want to say to you in these final moments of my life. I want so much to tell the children I love them. ...read more.

Conclusion

And all this time he must be wondering why he hasn't died yet. He's the only original man out here; everyone else has either been killed or injured and sent home. Six months he's been out here now and some of the men say he hasn't even been home for a break. In all that time? I really don't know how he does it? He really is a truly amazing man. Anyway I must have a quick sleep before I am due to go up. I'm not sure what to say now, all I no is that I love you and the children and I always will do. All my love, Christopher. ?? ?? ?? ??
