A War Time Letter
A letter from a young boy to his dad
A WAR TIME LETTER
I hope my letter finds you okay and you are having a better day
Thank you for the shilling for my 9th birthday, as you know it was yesterday.
I hope the cut on your face is much better what you said about in your last letter
You said you cut it on some barbed wire when the enemy started to fire
The place you are in doesn’t sound very good always being covered in mud
I hope this doesn’t make you laugh, but is there no where to have a bath.
The railway station got bombed last week but I was told I couldn’t go and peek
Mam said they must be blind, perhaps something better they couldn’t find.
Charlie Dawson’s dad came home last week, he got wounded and couldn’t speak.
He’s a gunner in a big plane, they said he would never fly again.
We go to church and pray to God so he won’t make things for you too hard
I prayed he would send you home whole so he doesn’t have to keep your soul
Well daddy you know it’s you we really miss so I send this letter with a big kiss.
Lots and lots of Love
