Shirley Webb received this letter from his older brother Bruce during World War II while still a student back home. During the Korean War, Shirley Webb served in the Army and was killed in Korea.
Somewhere in England
I was sorte surprise to get a letter from you. But, was glad to so, I thought I would answer right back. I'm somewhere in England, now. The climate don't suit me so well here, it's to cold for me. I think I would rather be back in Africa.
How do you like school now Shirley? Has Hershel, started yet? Study hard and make good grade and I'll get you a German for every "A" you make.
Be a good boy now, Shirley. Tell Hershel, Raymond and all of them hello for me.
Your Brother, Bruce
(Side notes: Brother Bruce sent this letter to Shirley when he was still home. Shirley was still a child going to school. Shirley later went to Korea and was killed)
