The David James Collection

This collection is one part of The Minnie James Collection found here: https://www.peoplescollection.wales/collections/2003551

Minnie James from Dowlais, Merthyr opened Wales’ Temple of Peace on 23 November 1938, representing war bereaved mothers of Wales and the world. She had lost 3 sons in the war – David, Thomas and Jack James – and led a procession of 24 women at the opening whose anguish as the nation’s ‘most tragic mothers’ encapsulated the deep desire for peace into the future.

The David James Collection aims to collate the letters, postcards, medals and miscellaneous items written and used by David James during his time at war. David sent these letters and postcards back home while undergoing army training in London and fighting in France during WW1. David was enlisted into the British Army in 1915. He was killed in action on September 25th 1916.

When read in sequence, users will gain an emotive insight in to the experiences of David through World War 1 and its aftermath:

- David James, Letters 1.1 - 2.42 (56 letters + 8 postcards). Letters 1.1-1.22 are those sent from training in London; letters 2.1-2.42 are those sent from France.
- David James' War Medals and other objects
