Missed the previous letters from Britian? Get caught up and then keep reading.
Today's letters are also from the bulletin marked March 31st, 1943, making them over 73 years old. Many of the little kids who are being referenced in these letters would be in their 70's or 80's today. With how historic these letters are, it's amazing to still be able to read them and share them today.
Another Monday means another Letters from Britain. Some of last week's letters were a little more serious, but this week's letters have a lighter tone. Hopefully, some of them will bring a smile to your face as they help show just how valuable the Milk for Britain campaign was to so many people.
If you have missed the previous Letters from Britain post, you can find it here.
Today's letters come from an official Kin Bulletin dated March 11th, 1943. Hal Rogers, Kin's founder, had this to say about the letters contained:
It was very important during World War II for any communications from overseas to be shared in any way possible. Getting in touch with someone was not an instant process the way it is today. Kin knew that finding some way to share the letters they were receiving from Britain with Kinsmen and Kinettes across the country would go a long way towards providing motivation for the Milk for Britain campaign.
So, the practice continues as we prepare for the launch of the new Milk for Britain documentary by sharing some of those same letters. If you missed the first part of Letters from Britain, you can read it here.
