Your Loving Son, Yum by KATHLEEN SATCHWELL

They may have been ‘men’ who fought (and died) for their countries but many of the millions who participated in the First World War were, in fact, still very much ‘boys’. One of them was Grahame Alexander Munro (St Andrew’s College 1911 – 1913), just 18  when he enlisted. This charming collection of two years of his letters home reveals the boy within the man.
