Dear Bob,


I’m going to be honest with you bob its horrible here there’s rats there’s nits and I have lost most of my team to gas bombs!

Sorry I never thought it would be like this cold, damp, I have fungus all over me.

We are not even living in houses we are living underground like some sort of worm they also said if we ran then they will shoot us but to be honest  I’m not sure which one I want to do anymore it doesn’t make a difference if I kill myself were going to die anyway.

Well that’s all the dry paper I have I will try to find some more so I can send you more messages.

Yours sincerely,


Dear family,


Living in the trenches is awful. The people stink and my feet are swollen. I am really thank full that I am still alive and you are alright. I want to go home and see all of you. I really want to come home, but I am going to be here till the war ends. I got so many wounds on my body but I am still fighting.  I don’t know if I can survive the war. I am on the front line so I have the most chance to die in the war. People are dying right in front of my eyes. All my close friends are dying but that won’t stop me. I am a survivor and I won’t stop till I die.  People die every day in the trenches and on the battle field. I want to come home.  

Let us know what you think of our letters written to families back home from the soldiers in the trenches.
