Letter from the trenches

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Disgusting trench Some field in France France 11th January 1915 Dear Mumsy, How are you? And how are Aunty Mabel, and Nanny Matilda? I miss you all so much! It?s terrible here. I?ve been forced to fight on the front line. I don?t know if you?ve heard, Mumsy, but the war isn?t going too well for us Brits, we haven?t progressed much since I got here. I am trying my hardest to be brave and strong, but you know me, mother dear, it?s proving to be very hard. ...read more.

Middle

They are all about the same size as Mr Fluffy, my dear pet cat (I hope you?re taking good care of him). Everyone is terrified of them. They eat everything, even the flesh of out dead comrade. Some men do try to get rid of them. They use their guns to scare them, and some even club the pesky intruders to death. Not me though, Mumsy, I try to stay as far away from those horrific rats as possible. One thing I can?t stay away from though, are the lice. ...read more.

Conclusion

My mouth?s watering just thinking about it. You see, Mumsy, the food isn?t very good here. I get ?bully? beef, with bread, and sometimes some biscuits and jam. Oh, how I wish I could come home? Although, to be fair, it?s not always that bad. When we get days off, we sing and tell stories, and write letters home, obviously? Well, Mumsy, I better be going, it?s almost time for ?dinner?. Give my love to Aunty Mabel, and Nanny Matilda, and little Roger. Oh, and give Mr Fluffy an extra sardine from me. I miss you all terribly, especially you, Mumsy. I?ll see you soon, Your dear son Timothy. ...read more.
