Born in August 1887 in Awsworth Notts, to Henry and Sarah Lamin. Elder Sisters Catherine (Kate) and Agnes (Annie) and Elder brother John (Jack).
His grandson Bill Lamin found a collection of letters, and decided to post them on a blog 90 years after they were written. Blog readers are like the family members waiting to hear what has been going on in Henry's life as a WWI soldier.
According to one of the news reports you can watch on the blog, over 20,000 people read the blog each day to find out what is going to happen next.
If you enjoy history, and want a glimpse into the past of what it was like to be a World War I soldier, I suggest visiting this blog and experience a bit of history many of us have only read about.
