At World of Books Group, we have discovered a moving and poignant hand-written letter from a British World War II soldier who was serving in Italy.
The note, written to thank a schoolgirl who had spent time knitting mittens for troops in the trenches, was found tucked away inside a book. During the war, those on the home front were encouraged to knit comforts for serving soldiers, with widespread initiatives run by organisations such as the British Red Cross. See photos of the WWII letter below, read the transcript here!
