58706: Bible found on battlefield

online resource
posted on 2024-02-23, 23:00 authored by Great War Archive Project Team

My father picked this Bible up on the Battlefield. Thomas Strickland was in the 6th Bn. Kings Own (Royal Lancaster) Regiment. I think the Bible used to have the name of a Canadian soldier on the inside cover.


Editor's Comment:
New Testament given out by the 'Pocket Testament League'. Name pencilled into front cover, but illegible.
