Has anyone read this book?

I have only just found this book – which contains the edited WW1 letters of the five Berryman brothers from Camberley.

It was published in 1987, but I was unaware of it until I stumbled over it recently.

I am hoping that someone can give me a review or at least a quick précis, which can be added to other wartime material being recorded in the town.  Please leave a comment on WordPress or Facebook, if you can help.

  1. I’ve not come across any of the Berryman brothers in my WW1 research, so can’t help there but a great find, would certainly like to read a copy of this book.

  2. I just did a quick Web search using the term ” Berryman Brothers WW1″ and found the letters on http://www.family letters.co.uk . Seems a family member is posting them there and includes some pictures. Hope this is helpful.

  3. Hi – I am the grand-daughter of Ted Berryman and the daughter of Felicite Nesham who wrote the book, and I am posting the letters online at http://www.familyletters.co.uk and I would very much like to link up with Camberley historians or people commemorating WW1 in Camberley, if only to promote what you are doing via Twitter. I spoke to the current Rector of Camberley (via Twitter) but he wasn’t very interested alas. So I am thrilled some Camberley Historians have found the site. I am tweeting @FamilyLetters, as you can see.

    • Thank you very much for your comments – I imagine that the Surrey Heath Museum would be thrilled to hear from you too!
      I have now lent my copy of the book to Lee (see previous comments) and I think it might be an idea for you two to get in touch?
