Letter home by Ollie

C Company

Hertfordshire Regiment



4th June 1915

Dear Mum,

The trenches are good if you are at the back trenches, but when your at the Front it’s boring. Also the rats are everywhere. My friend was shot on the shoulder. I miss Bullit Tooth Tony, but he’s coming back tomorrow I hope. Also we kidnapped two Germans, but they are not speaking, so we threatened them with the Guard dogs. I was lucky I wasnt pict because you have to go past Nomans land. Every day we have stew for dinner.

Private Oliver
