Whispers from WW1: Harry White's postcards

Fri, 10/30/2020 - 16:42

This small, but valuable collection of postcards sent by her great uncle during the First World War was among the items shared recently by Lucy Tedd on the People’s Collection Wales website. Henry Thompson White (or Harry, as he was known) was killed in an attack on High Wood on the Somme in 1916. Through these postcards – and the letters he wrote to his sisters, Lillie and Lucy, in Carmarthen – the family has been able to learn more about this young man whose life was cut short, like thousands of others from his generation.
