The second part of the task is to write a letter to the address where your soldier lived when he enlisted or the address he used for his next of kin. This address is generally found on the first page of the war record.
What to do
1. Write a letter to the current occupant of soldier's former residence to provide the person with an overview of the soldier's experience.
2. Choose 4 events from the soldier's war record from beginning to end. Your first point should be details about the soldier enlisting (where, when, etc.) and details about his departure from Australia (when, where from, on what boat, etc.). You then need to choose 2 major events from the soldier's war experience to tell the current occupant e.g. the battles the soldier was at, if he was injured, etc. You last point should be something from the end of the record e.g. when the soldier was discharged, where, why, etc.
3. Fill out the scaffold below to help you organise the content for the letter.
4. Look at the sample letter to get an idea what your letter should look like.
