Letters from the Front

by Julian F Fane Barny Books

Lt-Col William Fane died in 1943 at the age of 75.  He had fought in the Boar War with the Lincolnshire Regiment but was too old to take an active role in the First World War.  Instead he trained the men that were due to go out to the Front.

These are just some of the letter written by different men Lt-Col Fane trained.  They tell of the conditions they had to endure and the appalling casualties suffered, yet still giving their feedback so that Lt-Col Fane could improve training for the next group of volunteers.

Julian Fane is Lt-Col Fane's grandson and did his National Service in the Royal Lincolnshire Regiments 1957-59.
