Content description

A poignant collection of 78 ms letters and postcards written to his fiancee, Miss Emily Chitticks, while serving with the 2/1st Royal Devon Yeomanry in Essex and Norfolk (August - March 1916) and with the 8th Battalion Devonshire Regiment (20th Brigade, 7th Division) in France (from January 1917 until his death on 27 March 1917), giving brief details of his duties but mostly concentrating on their relationship and engagement, together with 25 ms letters to him from Miss Chitticks (August 1916 - April 1917) and other letters concerning his death, will and the location of his grave.
