George Ryan’s letter home dated 6 April 1917
1/9th Middlesex Regt
6 Apl 1917
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
