Helping with the War Effort, 1915
Cecile Victor was 6 years old when she wrote the letter below to Lady Clementine Waring. Lady Clementine was the wife of Major Walter Waring, Liberal MP for Banff, who fought in the war. She converted their home, Lennel House, in Berwickshire into a convalescent home for officers and did a great deal to support the needs of the soldiers. It gives an insight into how people at home contributed to the war effort. The letter is written in a child's hand, in pencil and with spelling mistakes appropriate to the child's age.
Dear Lady clementine
