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.

I've had some enquiries about whether the blog is continuing. Yes it is, but only as I find pieces of correspondence to upload. As you can see the letters stopped around the first of November and what remains in the files are those pieces of correspondence that reflect the family's attempts to learn Richard's fate.
