Love Letters from Worcestershire to and from the Front

Throughout the First World War men and women from Worcestershire exchanged thousands of letters, postcards and parcels every month.  Their words offer often poignant insights into their daily lives; revealing their daily worries and fears, their yearnings for each other and the quiet fields of home as well as their dreams for the post-war world.
