Sid & Elsie : love across the miles and down the years 6

Another card from Sid to Elsie, dated 1917.

When I smoke my cigarette,
I can hear a soft voice calling-
Very faint and far, and yet,
Nearer than the shrapnel falling
I can hear a kind word spoken
To my very heart’s enthralling,
While my magic rings unbroken,
I can hear a loving voice calling.
Salonica 1917.

To My Darling Wife
From Your ever loving and
devoted husband
Sid xxxxx

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.
