Dearest Ben.

Scarlet Harrier is betrothed to Ben Lincoln, but is separated from him as the first world war breaks out. The collection of letters he receives from her are stored here, where the reader may flick through as he or she pleases. Follow her story as she hopes, just hopes, she'll get a letter back. (Please note the media controlled a lot of what the public knew about the war, they advertised it as a game, childsplay. Grown men with dangerous toys. But it was more than that. A whole lot more.)

Dearest Ben,

I know it has been more than a week and I apologise. Mother came down with the flu and I just didn't have enough time to write to you. She is still sick but is okay for the while.

You are being deployed tomorrow aren't you my love? I wish you the best in your position, as my brother is also in your regiment. Look after Charlie please? I know he is just sixteen but was so eager to sign up I couldn't talk him out of it.

I miss you Ben, and you have only been gone all but ten days. You are brave, some say foolish. But I know, and believe that you may succeed in helping win this war. Fight on, I pray for you everyday.

All my love,

Your dearest Scarlet.
