|Title||Letter from 2683 William Albert Wenham to his mother|
|Notes||The first known letter sent home by William Wenham after he was wounded and captured on 6th December 1916. Not in his own hand as he was unable to write because of his injury. Apparently not received until March 1917.|
Mrs Wanham [sic]
49 Barcroft Street
[Postmark:] 15.2.17 P.Pr.St.Wahn
[note in different hand:] received it Mar 10th
I got slightly wounded on the right elbow so I am not able to write yourself. I was taken prisoner on account of being wounded. Do not worry I am quite alright.
Please let Lillie know. I shall soon write again.
Your loving son
