“The grub is a bit rough but it’s all right…”

I am finding this blog so very interesting that I felt it must be shared! The letters were written by one Joseph Henry Thompson and reading first hand experience of WWII provides both an intriguing insight and a touching story behind the era and the man himself. Can’t wait to read more, don’t want them to end, so think I will limit myself to one a day at the most (I seem to have come quite late to the party and there are over 70 letters already transcribed by his niece…)
