Alice Maud Chase in Gosport - between 1914 and 1918

from The memoirs of Alice Maud Chase, pages 43-44:

[The author’s husband Jim Chase was called up to serve in the First World War in August 1914. He returned home at the end of the war]. 



Time rubbed off the sharp edges of the parting and we all tried to make the best of things, and I thanked God I had three jolly little kids to cheer me with their games and songs and stories of school. [My daughter] May learned to play the piano and gave me a lot of pleasure.
