A letter along with pieces of stained glass from shelled churches in France during the First World War, collected by Captain James Price Lloyd. He was of the Welsh Regiment and served with MI 7b (1) from 1917 through to its disbandment shortly after the Armistice. MI 7b was the Military Intelligence section charged with propaganda during the First World War. Captain James Lloyd was well-placed to write about life in the front line, having been a Second-lieutenant commanding an infantry platoon since joining the army in February 1915. He was wounded at the battle of Mametz Wood in July 1916. During his convalescence, he was recruited to work for MI 7b.
