During the war John would send parcels of food and other essentials to men in the trenches. I received a letter of thanks from a soldier in the 6th Division whop went on to say: We have not had a wash, shave or change for two weeks, and are plastered from head to foot with mud. We are a happy band of mudlarks and still keep smiling. (From Barnwell at War, 2018).
