A wonderful letter from Geoff Le Pard’s father to his mother.. then his girlfriend in 1945. He was just age 18 and having made his first parachute jump was hoping they would let him serve abroad. They put everything on the line.. Please head over to read the letter in full.
In June 1945 my father was 18. He wrote the letter below to my mother, his then girlfriend with momentous news. He had undertaken his first parachute jump preparatory to being admitted as a member of the Parachute Regiment. He was many things in his life but nothing gave him more pride outside of his family than that.
Please head over to read the letter and leave your comments for Geoff.
