Jane Bradly – “Let us be sweethearts: letters from the First World War.”
Many families have treasured letters sent home by serving soldiers during the Great War. This collection of 176 letters is possibly unique in that it contains both sides of the correspondence and tells the story of a young girl student at Aberystwyth University and the soldier she met there in 1915. They write about their lives, interests and concerns during this period of great change.
