Extract from WW1 letter dated 24th December 1918
From David Henry Taylor in Balham to Ginger (Ethel Linn) In USA
“Dear Ginger,
I am home again, as of course you know by this time … we were not the first prisoners to get home by some thousands. It started in Holland, as soon as we crossed the border there was a continuous string of small children & people along the railway & all tinkling tiny bells & yelling, as the train passed … Here in London people seem willing to do anything for you if you are in khaki … And now for my news … May & I are going to be married …”
