A Letter Home

Dear family

I’ve been away for four years now. And I have some fantastic news. Yesterday the 11th of November 1918 at 11 o clock, the war finally ended and I will be returning shortly .

But before I must tell you that today was an incredible day. You see last night we buried the dead troops and today red poppies were growing everywhere! And we didn’t even plant them! Please pick me up at Cardiff harbor at 3:00 and make sure to have my favorite biscuits. I haven’t eaten for days here in the trench




Col. John McKeaney.
