Now we have a selection of letter which he sent home. I felt I was intruding on their privacy when I first got these and read them. They are love letters. So I will just show a few here with no detail.
But here is a scan of an Aerogram sent to his in laws. These were microfilmed letters sent home on film and then printed out in the UK in order to save frieght space.
What we thought was nice was the gift he sent of three pairs of silk stockings which he sent from India to Elizabeth. She never wore one pair of these and they are still like new today. Stockings were very hard to find back home in the UK.
There are also two telegrams, note they spelt his name incorrectly on one about his promotion to Captain. The second one refers to their Wedding Anniversary.
