Pte Rees Jones's letters home


Private Rees Jones's letters home to his sisters in Cwmgors in the period 1914-18, he died on 6th October 1918 in Salonica.
The content is sometimes  family related but nevertheless of historic interest, I think.

The letters are now very badly faded and flimsy, the colouring is not the original but a device to make the writing as legible as possible.
There are transcribed copies in the article in the main pages.


First letter is dated May 22nd, no year.
