Tauranga and Districts WW100 Postcard Competition: Aston Hamilton

Front line, Gallipoli Peninsula, 27 September, 1915. On Active Service.

Dearest Mother,

I've had a hard time here. Most of my friends are dead or wounded. Ernest is fine, but unhappy. I have been wounded twice, once in the leg and once in the hand and Harold is wounded as well, but alive. It's winter over here so It's freezing. The trenches are filled with water constantly and no one wants to stay any longer. Being captain is hard. I'm missing home and hoping we'll get back soon. From your dearest son, Frederick.
