Fred Firth's WWI letters

April 30th 1925

30th April 1925 (Thursday) 
The following from 1925 is on a standard lodgings account form, and probably represents a week's holiday for two people (see milk bill). This was very probably Fred's honeymoon. The marriage of a Frederick C Firth to an Ethel Beaumont was registered at Huddersfield between April and June 1925; Fred would then have been 29 or 30 years old.
