I shared a page from my grandfathers WWI diary yesterday. Yes, he really was my grandfather and not great-grandfather; my mother and I were born to older parents. That’s him above.
Here are a few shots of the scrapbook containing photos and postcards. He was on the trenches of France when the Armistice was signed. At some point, I’d like to trace his travels through England (where he trained) and France.
Over the next year, I hope to share more of these pages as well as postcards he received prior to the war.
