Subject: [Wikimediaau-l] The Maurice George Delpratt
Correspondence(Wikisource!)

 

Hi All,

 

For those of you who have been following the Pitch In! project on
Wikisource, a number of new works from the Maurice George Delpratt
collection of correspondence have been uploaded and are ready for
transcription.

 

https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Index:Maurice_George_Delpratt_Correspondence

 

Delpratt was an Australian soldier from the first world war who was taken
prisoner by the Turks in 1915.  His collection of correspondence to his
family after his capture provides a unique insight into the experiences of
POWs during the conflict, but also the impact that their capture had on
their families and friends back at home.

 

(On reflection, "The Maurice George Delpratt Correspondence" sounds like an
excellent name for an indie band, doesn't it?)

 

Cheers,

Craig Franklin
