Extract from WW1 letter dated 15th February 1919
From David Henry Taylor in Sheerness to May Muggridge in Beckenham
This morning I went & saw the doctor & that is the total amount of my day’s work … He said my heart was strained a little, but that was nothing very serious … From what I can hear I am attached to a Company having a crowd of officers & no men, with the consequence that there is nothing for us to do … I went for a walk along the sea front this morning after seeing the doctor, but I did want you, & the only thing I could do was to sit down & read your letter again …”
