Albert Franklin - Letters Home

Albert Franklin's letters home: Albert Franklin No.203461 - 1/4th Duke of Wellington’s West Riding Regiment. Killed in action 9th Oct 1917 aged 20.

Scans and transcriptions of Albert's letters are kindly provided by Anita Brewer. The letters are truly fascinating and very touching. They give a great insight into how the average soldier felt about service life at the time and are a true treasure.
