Home from the trenches

A Cookham teacher wanted extra time off to spend with her brother who was home on leave.

May 2nd 1916

School opened today…

Received telegram from Miss Pounds – infant teacher – asking extension of holiday for two days as her brother had just come home from the trenches in France.
