Sometimes an overabundance of words doesn’t make the point as well as the visuals do. We have all read and heard enough on the subject so I can forego the usual preamble and much of the commentary. Here are a selection of photos taken from Nottingham Castle Museum that speak for themselves.
Notes written on bits of fabric from the pocket of Charles Attenborough’s trench coat. He tells of British and German guns ringing in his ears and calls the messages a souvenir from France. Scraps of fabric and addresses were often left inside trench coat pockets by the girls who made the coats, in the hope that soldiers who they were issued to would write to them from the Front.
Tags of remembrance.
