In the summer of 2012 I visited Blind Veterans UK. Its story fascinated me…this is what I found.
Charlie was on active service and his little sister waited for news in Africa. It was 1915 and nearly Christmas.
The letter below was what went into the envelope eventually, and the Post Office then made sure that it arrived where it was meant to.
It must have been hard to know what to say to your little sister in Africa when you were waiting to be sent into action during the First World War.
