Letter from England - Eric Wright

"Somewhere in England, 23-2-422.
The Bradford Witness, Bradford, Ontario.
Dear Sir;
I would like to thank all the friends who contributed in sending me the swell parcel which I have just received. I cannot find time to thank all of you individually, but I want you to know that I greatly appreciate your kindness. It means a lot to me to receive a gift from folks i have known as friends. Again, thank you one and all.
I received a copy of The Bradford Witness to-day. Thanks a million for sending it so regularly. I am awfully glad to get them and always look forward to receiving the next copy.
Wishing you all the best of luck in everything, I remain, Yours sincerely
Eric Wright.

Letter from the Front - Bruno Cavallo

"To the Bradford Witness:
Have arrived safely overseas. As this is my first trip to this country, I'm looking forward to seeing a great deal of it. I think, in fact, I know that I'll still like good old Canada. I'm writing this letter along with one to my family, so it will be short.
Will be glad to hear from anyone who will write to me.
There was a wonderful bunch of men who came over on the last draft, so it won't be long now. Will be seeing you all soon. -Bruno
In his letter to his parents Bruno Cavallo told of meeting Baldwin Stoddart, Calvin and Wilfred Aikens and several men from Orillia and Sudbury whom he knew when working in those towns. His address is - Cpl. Bruno Cavallo, B-108600, No. 4 C.I.R.U., Canadian Army Overseas."

Letter from the Front - Harold Wilson

"Dear Mr. McKenzie:
I would like to thank you and the members of the bradford Canadian Corps Association for your kindness extended to me while in this country. I wish to thank the Corps for their regular assignment of cigarettes. It is hard to express one's appreciation for Canadian cigarettes, as the English fags are very interior when compared to ours.
I have been receiving a very welcome visitor weekly in the form of The Bradford Witness. It keeps me well abreast with all the local happening and recalls to one the days at home. I wish to thank you and the Hon. Earl Rowe for making this possible.
I haven't met anyone from Bradford or vicinity over here in my wanderings, but, judging from your column, "With the Men in Uniform," in The Witness, it is well represented.
Thanking you again, I remain, Respectfully yours, Harold Wilson."

Letter from the Front - Herb Taylor

"Dear Friends:
Many thanks to you and the people of Bradford for the parcel and cigarettes which I have been receiving regularly. Someone must have given a great deal of thought to the making up of that Christmas parcel. It arrived in fine shape and all the contents in good condition - and thank you, Mrs. Saint, for your care in packing it." ...

Letter from the Front - Jack Donnelly

"Editor of Witness, Bradford, Ontario.
Dear Sir:
Just a few lines to acknowledge receiving The Bradford Witness very regularly and must say I am very thankful to Hon. Earl Rowe and to you for being so good as to provide us boys with the paper, as it sure is great to read the news of good old Bradford and district.
As for news over here, it is very scarce. It seems as though the friends I had back in Canada have given up writing since I came over here, though I certainly have done my part as I have written to several, but no answer, and I make a practice of answering any letter I get. Of course, their replies may have been lost at sea.
However, I receive The Witness very regularly, and that means a whole lot when I don't get any other mail. Again I send my thanks to Mr. Rowe and you for this great pleasure, and also to the Bradford Corps Association. They have been real good to me. Yours truly, Jack Donnelly.
B. 49-511 - Pte. Jack Donnelly, R.C.O.C. No. 2 Detachment, M.T. Depot, Can. Army Overseas."
