Description

Letters relating to the First World War service of Private James Joseph Makin. These letters, sent to his mother and father, were written between 15 January and 11 December 1918. Topics discussed include Makin's work at AIF Headquarters and life in London, and the entry of American troops into the war. Makin's brother, George, died of wounds in France in September of 1918; letters in this file around that date talk at length about this event.
