These letters were the inspiration for children’s contributions to ‘Letters of Lockdown’.
You can find information about the whole project on the ‘With Love’ exhibition page, as well as a display of submissions from members of the public in response to original archive documents.
Though the project has now closed for submissions, we have left these letters here for you to use in your own time.
These special letters from The National Archives’ collection covered the themes of separation, kindness, strength and hope. We provided an image of the real letter as well as background information about it with letter-writing prompts to help inspire your own writing.
