    Appears to be letters of girl friend or fiancée. Interesting description of life in Chester in the latter years of 14-18 War. Only one William Crawford listed in CWGC records and he was killed in mid 1918 serving in the Household Bn so might be the same person. If so, sad that he didn`t make it through to the end.
