The Chocolate Letters: Christmas 1914

On Sunday 5 December at 14.00 (2 pm), Bishopthorpe resident Ken Haywood will be giving a talk at the York Army Museum in Tower Street, next to Clifford’s Tower.
The title of Ken’s talk is ‘The Chocolate Letters’.
At Christmas 1914, the Lord Mayor and the Sheriff of York sent a tin of chocolate to all York men who were serving with the Forces. Many men sent letters of thanks and those letters were retained and are now conserved in Explore at York.
Ken’s illustrated talk explores the writers and their letters which came from all ranks and from all over the world.
