Summary
During the course of the First World War, staff of the Great Western Railway's Audit Office sent letters and photographs back to their employer in Paddington, which were in turn collated into monthly 'newsletters' by those who stayed at home to keep Britain moving. Today these newsletters give a unique insight into the Great War - these soldiers were writing to inform and entertain their colleagues rather than to comfort a worrying parent or to confess their love to a distant partner - and bring a distinct band of individuals to life
