Women with Sons at the Front – January 1915

At first we were eager to hear all about the new military life but we can have too much even of that and I confess my heart sinks when I hear a woman begin about the last letter she received from her son billeted in some hitherto unknown part of Britain. It requires considerable courage to change such a subject and, if one lets her go on there is an end to all other talk.

At first I had a grievance that one of my own family who was drilling had nothing to tell of his doings that I could repeat and I envied the women whose young men folk were such good correspondents but it has its compensations.
