Sid & Elsie : love across the miles and down the years 4

Another card and poem from Sid to Elsie in 1917.

Sometimes, dear wife, when I’m lonely,
The spell of your magic presence
Will drive away all care and sadness
And brighten my darkest hour
In sunshine and in shadow too
With heart and soul I am longing for you.

Salonica 1917.

To My Daring Wife from
Your ever loving and devoted Husband.

Andy's interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Arthur, who served in Salonika as a sapper with the Royal Engineers from 1916-1918. Opinions expressed in these posts are personal and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Society.
