11 - 11 - 11

This letter was received by my great-grandmother informing her that her brother had been killed in action during World War One.


Dear Miss Addison,

                    It is my sad duty to tell you that your brother was killed by a bomb early on the morning of the 8th November.

Anything that I may say is I know of little value, but really he was a most exceptionally fine chap and just the night before we were remarking what a pleasure it was to have anything to do with him. He was so obliging, so smart in appearance and so thorough.

I sympathies with you very deeply.
