George Ryan’s letter home dated 6 April 1917

Dear Ma,


I have written to Mr Walker this week (about time too, I expect you’ll think) & asked him to send you what remains to my credit at the office, so that the monthly amounts will dis-continue. Please invest it in War Loan – you will know best which Stock – & let me know the particulars.


To-day, being Good Friday, we should have had a Church Parade but we’ve got a holiday instead, owing to the outbreak of measles.


Hoping you are all well &with best love & kisses from

Your loving son
