Two First World War soldier Valentine's Day cards tell doomed love story

Breaking News

The, cards written by a British soldier to his sweetheart back home, are to be auctioned after being quietly kept for almost 100 years.

They were sent to Edith Dunn, then aged 22, from the love of her life, a soldier called Will who she met when he served in the same regiment as her brother, Tom.

The war started seven months after he sent the card in 1914 and Tom was killed. To this day no-one knows where his body lies.
