ARTHUR WILLIAM HAMMOND  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!
