Gunner E Green


Harrogate Herald - 3rd March 1915

Gunner E Green, of the Royal Field Artillery, writing home from Jhansi, India, says :

Dear Mother and Dad, Just a line to wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year and to hope that you had a merry Xmas. I am sorry I missed the Christmas mail, but it left here on Monday; but never mind, better late than never. I would have liked to have come over to let Christmas and New Year in, but no such luck, as I don't think I shall leave here until my time has expired, as I don't think we have much hopes for moving. If I had stopped in the 128th Battery in Ireland I should have been in the firing line by now, as I see they are there. I don't expect you will be sorry that I had to come out here now, as it will be serving you a lot of worry knowing where I am. I am glad I had to come out here in one way, but all the same I should like to do my little bit for old England, and I know you would be glad that I was. At last I have had my photo taken, which I hope you will receive all right. You will see that I have altered since I came out here, two years and a half since. I think this is all. With best to all, I remain,

Your ever loving son,


PS Received cake and cigarettes, which have arrived safe. I shall enjoy them a treat.
