TORN FROM MY COAT I SEND TO THEE…

During the Boer War, British soldiers would send home keepsakes to loved ones. Made with fabric torn from their tunics, the soldiers hand decorated the patches with personalized messages of love to those waiting back home.

“Torn from my coat I send to thee this war worn piece of old khaki”
