An interesting face, don’t you think? I came to know about this man, Arthur William Hammond, while sorting through our archive files. I found a series of letters he had written to his mother between 1914 and 1918. In reading the letters, I was fascinated to discover how he began his military career as a trooper in the Royal Horse Guards and about the many aspects of his life during WWI ~ his life while stationed away from home… his family’s life while awaiting his return. A number of events led to some extraordinary achievements… In my next post, I’ll tell you more!
