Letters from a Medmenham Soldier

We arranged an exhibition between 22 October and 23 November in St Peter and St Paul Church, Medmenham of the wartime letters of John 'Charlie' Hold. Charlie lived in Medmenham before the War and served in France from May 1916 until he was killed in action in December 1917.

There is an archive of more than 90 letters that he wrote to his family that has been preserved in Leeds University Library Special Collections. We have transcribed the letters and published them.

Copies of the letters are available from Marlow Museum. Alternatively please email us and we will send you a copy.
