Finding an old bag of letters, Ed Green publishes story on farming and WW1

Inspired by an old bag of letters found in his attic, the book, It leaves Me The Same: A farmer’s son in The Great War, explores what farming life was like during World War I and how it brought much change to Britain’s countryside.

 

Ed says: “The letters and diary told the story of how my great uncle trained at an army camp in Wyke Regis, Weymouth, and then travelled to France and fought with the Dorset Regiment.”

 

The sixth generation to farm the land which his great uncle once did, he hopes the book can highlight the role of farmers and the rural community during World War I.

 

He says: “Hopefully the book helps us remember the sacrifice many farmers and ordinary country folk, such as my great uncle, gave for us all.”
