This letter from my grandfather, found in my great-aunt's belongings, certainly made me smile.
The letter - which interestingly has been witnessed and stamped - is written on headed note paper from the local Labour Party and is dated 3 months after the general election that swept the Labour Party to power just after the end of the war in Europe. My grandfather campaigned very actively for the Labour Party in the election. Letters between his sisters say he spoke of nothing else at the time. My father's first memory is of standing outside their cottage - which was opposite the polling station - waving his, suitably red shirted, Pooh Bear and shouting "Vote Labour!"
As the family had very little money, quite what my grandfather was doing with 6 champagne flutes and 2 cut glass decanters I don't know. And whether the humour in his choice of letter head had struck him I am unsure.
