Wartime Telegram

Back to the story

G2479. This is the telegram received on the 13th June 1940, by the parents of Sergeant Albert Williams. It told them of the loss of their eldest son and was a dread for too many families at that time. All too often during the war years families received these telegrams and one can only imagine the anguish that followed in the minds of parents who have just lost a son.
