A very sad letter.

It happened quite a bit during the war, my great-uncle George Dyer, who died in 1943 at Scafati, Italy (see http://ww2talk.com/index.php?threads...-surrey.26592/), was in the same position. This was with the other party being a Canadian soldier a Sports Instructor for the 5th Reinforcement Unit, who also had a wife and two sons in Canada. George's wife, resident in England, had only just been born when her father was killed in the First World War serving with the same Regiment in which George later served.

There are several letters in this thread - I can only imagine how isolated he must have felt. The very possibility of my mother having an affair and my father being unable to do anything about it must have been very traumatic for him.

He would never be so vulnerable again for the rest of his life as he was at that moment.
