A letter a day

Add some correspondence to your daily routine.

During the Covid 19 situation, some of the museum team are using their time transcribing letters sent to and from Second World War soldier, John Oldfield, who was from Sandsend in North Yorkshire.

There are more than 1000 letters, so we’re in it for the long haul.

We have redeployed our retail and admissions team to this task whilst the museum is closed and they are loving travelling back in time each day to transcribe and upload the results.

Find out more about John Oldfield and read the letters here.
