Letters and postcards were a common form of communication between those serving in the war and their families.  Matthew Miller, from Stairhill, Stair, was on the front lines when he sent these postcards to Miss Mary Cook of Whitletts, Ayr. We would be pleased to hear about any of your ancestors who served in World War One.

Whilst the pair managed to keep in contact during his service, they did not marry after the war was over, but they did remain friends.
