World of Books Group and British Red Cross seek to reunite piece of World War 2 history with its owner

• World of Books Group have discovered a moving and poignant hand-written letter from a British World War 2 soldier serving in Italy.

• The note, written to thank a schoolgirl who had spent time knitting mittens for troops in the trenches, was found tucked away inside a book.

• During the War, those on the home front were encouraged to knit comforts for serving soldiers, with widespread initiatives run by organisations such as the British Red Cross.

• World of Books and the British Red Cross are now looking to reunite this piece of World War 2 history with its owner and discover more about the soldier who penned it.
