Dear Mrs Pennyman
The Dear Mrs Pennyman project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It has digitized over 100 letters sent to Mary Pennyman in her capacity as secretary of the King’s Own Scottish Borderers Widows and Orphans Fund. The letters are the copyright of Teesside Archives and are available to explore on this website. They offer a fascinating insight into the often heart-breaking circumstances of those who lost sons, husbands and brothers in the First World War.
