Letters from the trenches

publisher Nov 8, 2017 - 9:21am

France October 4, 1916: “I am getting heartily sick of this whole business, it is awful the slaughter of men. I think the whole world is crazy. I often wonder why I am left so long.”

Those lines are from a letter John Albert Ferguson wrote home while fighting in the trenches in World War I.

Excerpts from this compelling correspondence are published in the November 8 edition of The News.
