Gilbert Bradley and Gordon Bowsher fell in love shortly before the beginning of the Second World War; however when Gilbert joined the army their relationship survived through beautifully crafted letters.
The letters, which were on display at our Birmingham Pop-In Centre in March, came to light thanks to Mark Hignett, the Curator of Oswestry Museum.

After coming across 600 of the letters in 2017 he began piecing the story together. Initially, he thought they were between a man and woman. It was only once he discovered the ‘G’ signing off the letters was a man that he realised their historical significance.

Mary Ann Shadd Cary was an outspoken activist in the movement to abolish slavery in the USA. In 1853 she became the first woman publisher in Canada, helping to found and edit The Provincial Freeman, a weekly newspaper dedicated to anti-slavery, black immigration to Canada, temperance (urging people to drink less alcohol), and upholding British rule.
