Letters To Loved Ones (via Imperial War Museums)

During the First World War, letter writing was the main form of communication between soldiers and their loved ones, helping to ease the pain of separation.

The British Army Postal Service delivered around 2 billion letters during the war. In 1917 alone, over 19,000 mailbags crossed the English Channel each day, transporting letters and parcels to British troops on the Western Front.
