Here I am safe and sound back at the old hospital…


HMB     25th April 1918

My dearest Mother

Here I am safe and sound back at the old hospital.

We had an awfully smooth crossing and shared a cabin together. The boat wasn’t very full. It was very hot though and I couldn’t sleep very much. We planted two yew trees as I told you. It was very necessary.

We spent a quiet morning at the BRCS hostel at Havre and came on by the mid-day train. It is an old bus and takes hours, but it’s more comfortable than arriving by the crowded express at 7. There is little or no news: they are pretty busy as they have had two biggish convoys in since I left and are expecting others.

The garden looks top-hole: I’m awfully pleased with it.

I must dry up now and go to bed.

Best love to you all


Your loving Dorothy.

About Mrs T

Beyond the day job, the housework and the garden I love to delve into local and family history. I also love to get involved in local projects. Recent research for Alford Manor House has combined the two and led to obsession.
