Overview

This work tells the true story of young minister Hugh Wallace Mann and his one and only love Jessie, from the earliest days of their friendship in 1911, to a military hospital bed on the Normandy coast after the Battle of Passchendaele in 1917.
The "golden days" when they would set up home together after their marriage were not to be. A few days leave from camp or from the Western Front was the best fate had to offer. For the rest, they had to live "in their letters until the next time." Hugh survives the Battle of Loos, where the 7th Battalion of the Cameron Highlanders suffers 75 per cent casualties, and eight months of shelling and trenches at Arras, leaving him bereft of many more companions. In the quagmire of Passchendaele, Hugh "gets his blighty."
The letters take the reader from Shettleston in Glasgow to many scenic parts of Scotland, from the depot in Inverness to camps south of the border, from billets in the quiet villages of Flanders and France to his final resting place on Les Terrasses at Le Treport. The authors evoke the strenuous routine of army camps, the relative calm of billets, and the horror, brutality and excitement of trenches and battle. And in writing, Hugh immortalizes his love for Jessie.
