Stonehenge 1917-18
Stonehenge has been in the news recently, so I was reminded of the visits my father made during the cold winter of 1917-1918 while he was on Salisbury Plain being trained for the Machine Gun Corps.

Here are some unedited extracts from his letters to his parents.

The first letter we have from Salisbury Plain, Sunday 2nd December 1917.

...... I can just see Stonehenge from this hut. It's looks wonderful 2 miles away on the great
sweeping downs
