Cool Historical Finds
A guy my dad works with brought in a bunch of stuff today from his great grandmother's brother, who was a field artillery officer in WW1. He wrote Luke, the guy my dad works with, this telegram when he was 93 and Luke was 12.
In it, he tells about his experiences on 11/11/1918, and tells a very interesting story about his horse.
My dad asked to take him home to show my brother and I. I found it so interesting and figured I'd share it with you guys.
SUPER cool read, it's definitely worth it.
Luke brought in some of the things mentioned in the telegram, like the spurs and the original cease-fire orders.
