Canadian troops on the Western Front

A collection of letters, photos and postcards dating back to the First World War has been discovered in a house in Toronto, Canada, reports Canadian broadcaster CBC.

The letters were sent to a woman named Hilda MacLeod apparently by a soldier named NE Waring, who describes life in the trenches of the Western Front.

They were found by Joel Cormier and Ashley Cameron in a box in their attic. The pair are hoping to return the letters to relatives.
