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.

25 Oct 1917 the lonely winter nights
I thought I'd add a photo of Richmond and Dundas Street in 1915, which is about the time Richard joined up. Notice the electric lights on the sidewalk, overhead telephone wires and an electric trolley. No horses in sight. I wonder if that's Mabel on the bike?
