Olive and Eric

Dedicated to a young English couple who during the Second World War were, like millions of others, separated from each other. Olive was left at home in the City of Leicester with three very young children and Eric was sent first to North Africa and then to Italy.

Through their letters to each other, we can share the feeling of those times in a way which history books can never convey. The letters are for the most part not edited and are presented as they were written. They were found when Eric passed away in the late 1980's, just a few years after his wife, Olive.


Website about journalist, philanthropist, novelist and medium Robert James Lees, an acclaimed Victorian spiritualist - and a son of Leicester. A thoroughly interesting site for those with an interesting in psychic history, spiritualism itself, or any son of the city should visit this site!
