A letter written in February 1918 from “somewhere in France”
by Private Roy Edward Jacobs of Grassie, Lincoln to Gwen Johnson.

“No I didn’t hang up my stockings for Santa Claus because I was down in a deep dugout with a man at the top with a gun who wouldn’t let anyone down so Santa wouldn’t stand much a chance near the front line.”
