Kentish Express Ashford & District - - County Coup -

On the back of the post­card of the bomb­ing in Salonica, Henry Thomas Back wrote a note to his fam­ily.

It read: “Dear Mother, just a few lines to say I am quite well and I hope you are at home.

“We are not stay­ing in Salonique Town for a time. I can’t say how long for.

“They say we will be leav­ing this month to march for Egypt again to be de­mo­bilised but are not sure yet.

“I have sent you a few post­cards of Salonique when on fire, it de­stroyed some hun­dreds of houses.

“I have not had any let­ters from home since I re­ceived your Xmas let­ters so I can’t write much this time.

“I will close now with love and best wishes to you all, from Harry.”
