Stay safe my Grenadier
Stephen Leslie Pearmain

An old suitcase, 500 letters. A true love.

In 2013, Stephen Pearmain went up to his loft and rediscovered his great-grandmother Phine’s suitcase. Inside were an amazing collection of letters, postcards and photos sent between her and her ‘darling Leslie’. The letters, starting in 1914, record their lives during World War One, as Leslie fights in the trenches and dodges bullets, and Phine gets by working in the munitions factory and sewing shirts.
These letters are not only a valuable record of everyday life during this time, but are also testament to a romance that survived the brutal Great War and beyond
