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.

30 July 1917 I wonder what has become of Ted Gerrard
I believe the Ted Gerrard he is mentioning is Edward Gerrard who also attested in the 142nd Btn in London Ontario. His regimental number was 823133. He is not listed in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission data base, so I presume he survived the war.
