Born in August 1887 in Awsworth Notts, to Henry and Sarah Lamin. Elder Sisters Catherine (Kate), Mary Esther and Sarah Anne(Annie) and Elder brother John (Jack).
Educated at Awsworth Board School, just outside Ilkeston, Derbyshire, England.
I served with honour in the 9th Battalion York & Lancaster Regiment seeing front line action in Flanders and Northern Italy from the end of 1916 to January 1920.
I find it really amusing how Harry and my Grandpa talk in exactly the same way when they write in letters, but I suppose that is how they were taught!
I am really enjoying reading these letters as well I think it is a great idea. I took history as one of my standard grades so this really interests me, we have been studying the Second World War, but this is still great to read!
Were any of your family in the Second World War? If they were did they write letters like this and were the letters preserved?
If they were I think you should defiantly post them to, that would be really interesting as well!
