Letters From Home

Gallipoli Peninsula

28 April 1915

Dear Mum, Dad and Siblings

We have arrived here at Gallipoli and with our big army ships. I can smell the blood everywhere I turn. I follow my team mates to avoid being shot at. Luckily there are a lot of us so that gives me an advantage of staying alive. Every time a team mate has died it feels like I've lost a person in my family.

Everywhere I look all I see around me is blood and dead bodies. I use the bullets that are dropped to shoot the other team. I stay in the trenchers to hide.  

I am enjoying the soup you sent from home it is better than the food we eat here. I am so happy to be surviving and I am trying to protect my team mates. One of my team mates pushed me out of the way and he got blowed up by a tank. I tried to save him but he said go and survive so I left him behind and he broke his body in half.

From Brian O‘Conner

Dear my lovely hero

I miss you so much son and I can not be more prouder of you. I'm glad your surviving. Please don’t go out into the battle to much. I can’t stop crying but I’ll bet you’ll be fine. If you come home I have a surprise for you. Write a letter back to find out what the surprise is.

Love From Your Lovely Parents and Siblings
xoxoxoxo to you too my hero
