Potential match: Boots 'Comrades in Khaki', July 1915, 'Seaman P Reeve, who is in training with the Hawke Battalion, and Pte JW Beaumont both pay a well-merited tribute to the value of the correspondence sent by the men from the front. 'I am proud', Says Seaman Reeve, 'to have my name and that of my brother among the Roll of Honour in 'Boots Comrades in Khaki', The letters from our men on active service excel in interest and variation all that I have yet read, and they are regarded with wonder and admiration by the many persons to whom I have shown them.'
