Christmas Messages from Nottinghamshire in the First World War

In 1914 booklets were printed to send to the families of Nottinghamshire soldiers serving on the Western Front in France and Belgium-

“With most cordial Christmas greetings from the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, whose pride in their soldiers and sailors is unbounded.”

Our Nottinghamshire showcases  the full booklet and the story of this rare surviving copy, treasured by the descendants of Mrs Harriet Smith of St Anns.
