The Chocolate Letters

At Christmas 1914, the Lord Mayor and Sheriff of York decided to send a gift of Rowntree’s chocolate to all York Servicemen whether they were serving at home or fighting abroad. The story behind the gift and the extraordinary response to it from the men has been researched by Ken Haywood.
