I finished reading the rest of Grandpa Jude's WWI diary today. Just reading through it all has been a fascinating trip in itself. I've been transcribing various bits of it that I found particularly interesting, or amusingly written or whatever. So if any of you Waldon-types don't feel like trying to read through all the scanned images, let me know and I'll give you a few pages of selected highlights. What frustrates me, though, is that the diary stops the instant he gets discharged, leaving me dangling with so many more questions. What was it like being home after almost 2 years? What was his life like outside the army? Who was Mid, and what happened with her when he got back?
