WW1 1918 LETTER FROM FRANCE WRITTEN BY PTE LIONEL KINGSBOROUGH AIF OF THE 5TH PIONEER BATTALION AIF REGIMENTAL NUMBER 2628 TO HIS MOTHER IN BURNSIDE ADELAIDE SA.
We have on offer an original very historically interesting & important 4 page letter written on April 28th, 1918, on 5th Pioneer Battalion letterhead paper, by Private Lionel KINGSBOROUGH of the 5th Pioneer Battalion. Lionel was writing to his mother in Briar Bank, Burnside, Adelaide, South Australia. He is writing this letter whilst camped in France where he talks about going life in the dug outs & being shelled upon by the German Army.
He also mentions buying some lace to send back home which was purchased in a French village near where they were “dug-in” but unfortunately the village was in flames under german shell fire. I have the lace & envelope mentioned in this letter if you wish to enquire.
