Impi. Victorian War Forum, great web-site

But this is fictional nonsense. There was no Charlie. These letters are based on fantasy. Idea

I wouldnt dismiss it out of hand. Kieths research looks pretty good to me. I will look up the Kcall references later.

hi all.
Just lost my post , so here it is again . K. Smith is not one to dabble in nonsense or fiction for that matter ,
He also certainly knows his stuff , so to my way of thinking those letters would be the real deal .
cheers 90th.

The name Charlie was given, because the origin of the letters is not known.
