First edition. The book is reasonably firmly bound in clean blue cloth lettered in gilt and blind, the corners and spine ends are somewhat bumped and rubbed. The text block is slightly foxed, toned and dusty with minor cracking at points. The dust jacket is the original, it is slightly toned and grubby with minor loss, closed tears and rubbing. An important record of the experiences of Lady Bradford in her work as a VAD in France during the First World War, particularly the role that she chose to play as ‘Tommy’s Little Mother’, listening to the wounded men and helping them to compose letters to their mothers, wives and sweethearts at home. Quite an uncommon find, particularly in the dust jacket.
