‘To Warwick with Love’

The private postcards of an aristocratic family

14 Aug 2014

The brutal impact of the First World War tore through all levels of society; from the poorest labourers to the wealthiest landowners. BPMA has teamed up with Warwick Castle’s History Team to reveal for the first time the hidden trauma of how war tore apart the family of the Earl of Warwick, told through the intimate postcards sent by a mother and father on the Front Line to their children back home.  These postcards reveal the trauma, tragedy, heartbreak, and irony of the Great War and how it tore apart this aristocratic family.
