Found recently amongst the belongings of a South Staffs veteran is this very nice hand carved pipe rack. Condition is very good.
Pte Gamson was sent home from France at the end of 1915 being hospitalised with rehmatic fever, this might well have been made by him during his recovery as i do know he became an art teacher and a local Newport artist.

WW1 Named South Staffs Cased Binoculars and Trench Letter.

As used by a Private Gamson a South Staffs signaller during the year 1915 in France, the case is named twice with his details and interestingly its recived a coat of dark green paint to the front, sides and top. The binoculars are the civilian type found used during the early years due to the shortage of optics for the British army. The Binoculars are in nice condition with clear optics but one lens is slightly out when focusing, Gamson has used a leather cord as a neck strap. The letter was sent by Gamson from France in 1915 to his sweetheart in South Wales. Ganson was invalided home in 1915 with rheumatic fever.

WW1 Military Ephemera, 1915 Dated Letter, South Staffs Cap Badge and Cigarette.

Here is a really interesting letter sent by private Gamson whilst training with the South Staffs Regiment in Saffron Walden to a girl he's ''walking out'' with. In the letter he illustrates a fashionable cap being worn by ladies during the time and sends along a spare cap badge for his sweetheart to wear. The cap badge is in perfect condition being wrapped in tissue for over a hundred years and looks like it would have being brand new at the time and without any polish being applied. Also found was a flattened cigarette and in his letter he mentions sending her a ciggy with each letter. It would appear a Military biscuit was sent, this i didnt find. The rest of the letter also has some intersting insights of the time.
Gamson served in France in 1915 before being invalided out with fever, he latter married the lady in question.
