A collection of letters from Pte Dick Armer to his wife Mabel who he frequently referred to as "Dear old girl". His three children were Billie, Marjorie and Dorothy who was born while he was away.
Dick had promised to "write every day" and, with few exceptions, kept his promise. The letters were written during WW1 from Camp Borden in Canada, on the train to Halifax, on board ship to England, from Witley Camp and France.

Dick started his letter of the 11th of July part way through the second page of the letter of the 10th. We will put up the rest of the 11th tomorrow. Looks like the 135th, 149th and 168th Battalions were up to no good.
