Didn't know that correspondence existed. I'll now have to try to find it.I confess to being a bit of a Mercer hero-worshipper in my youth too. It primed me for the ‘old soldier’ stories all my career, and on here I suppose. Do you have the booklet of letters he exchanged with Leathes? It gives an insight into the disgruntled veteran, and I suspect would be uncomfortably close to home for some of us!
