Thelma Theaker's Remembrance Book


The images below are from a Remembrance Book in my possession, but which was formerly in the possession of Thelma Theaker.

The book was published 1908 so some of the early entries were made long after the event.

I have transcribed the pages to the best of my ability but I do stand to be corrected.

Transcription in progress below. Entries in [ ] are mine.
