Royal Army WW2 Letter Home

Extracts from this document...


Royal Army Barracks Base 220 ENGLAND January 29, 1934 Mrs.Delyla Jones 8 Centenary Street Chipley Nottingham ENGLAND NM202MN Dear Delyla, I'm sorry I haven't been in touch lately; things have been getting really bad over here. There are talks about going over the top but it must be nonsense, we'd all get killed if we did. I hope you all are well.

But then again I have to fight for my country. There is power to be regained and you who I love the most and many more are counting on me and thousands to pull through and win this conquest.

If only us men weren't so obsessed with power. If this be my last letter to you then I want you to know something. I love you more than anyone could love anyone or anything, ever.

But believe me, I would change it if I could. If this be the end then I bid you goodbye, my one and only love. I will meet you again in a place not so far away and we will be together forever once more. I'll love you for eternity.
