DescriptionOriginal and typed copies of letters relating to the First World War service of Corporal Stephen Philip Boulton, 2nd Field Artillery Brigade. The letters were written by Stephen Boulton to his Family in Sydney, NSW, between 13 January to 31 December 1916. In these letters, Boulton recounts the confusion over his ailment, disappointment at not being sent back to Australia, returning to the Brigade in France, the taking of Pozieres and the effect of the weather on front line operations. Both the original letters and typewritten copies were made available to the Australian War Memorial in 1928 by Boulton's mother, Mrs Dora Boulton.
