Captain/Major Harold Ward Correspondence

Title in English
Letters written by Harold Ward to his wife and son

Description
Letters written by Captain/Major Harold Ward to his wife, Louise Ward (nee Jacques) and son Kenneth Martin Ward. This collection comprises some 253 items (plus 9 field service post cards), written on 875 sides of paper of various shapes, sizes, colours and conditions. Most letters are written on only 1 side of the paper; some are double sided. Capt/Major Ward's handwriting was very legible even when he was writing by candle-light in the trenches. Some of the letters have been nibbled by silver fish in the intervening years! Since correspondence was censored they tend to focus on non-specifics. However, those who know the history of the 2/4th and 2/5th Lincolnshire Battalions, will be able to make more sense of the activities, events and conditions which Capt/Major Ward reports.
