Impi. Victorian War Forum, great web-site

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 .

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