WORLD WAR II love letters discovered hidden under the floor boards of a Scarborough hotel.
In a heart-warming discovery a number of letters from World War II have been found under the floorboards of the Esplanade Hotel in Scarborough in the UK. The love letters were discovered during renovation works at the Scarborough hotel.
The letters are lovingly signed ‘Yours For Ever, M.’, but the actual couple are never named in the letters. Along with the hidden letters were a number of other World War II items including chocolate wrappers, ticket stubs and cigarette packets. All the items were discovered beneath the floor of a small utility room.
The worker that made the discovery soon handed the letters and items over to the Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society, and according to the BBC the letters were written between 1941 and 1944.
All the letters begin with ‘My Darling’, and tell the life of a woman left behind during the war. One of the letters read, ‘I am glad to hear that you are enjoying yourself darling and I will try to do the same although without you now life is not the same for me,’
‘You are always in my thoughts night and day.’
‘Wherever you may go my darling don’t forget that I love you more than anything else on earth.’
