Stanley Jack's 1918 Letters and Annie Pott Photo Album:

Earlier in 2019 the Marple Website picked up the baton from the late Jack Turnbull in his mission to track down missing letters written by WWI soldier Stanley Jack to his love Annie Pott in Marple.

Fantastic news is that some of Stanley's letters found their way into Marple Local History Society's archives. They are those written by Stanley to Annie in 1918, so there is still a large number not discovered as they wrote to each other regularly from 1915 onwards.

Along with the 1918 letters was a wonderful little photo album owned by Annie, which she wrote her address inside in case she lost it. The content of this was so interesting that a video slide-show has been created by The Marple Website to share the story with the Marple Community: https://www.marple.website/community-projects/looking-for-stanley-jacks-letters-html.html



We are still trying to decide how best to preserve and share Annie and Stanley's letters for posterity but we're pretty sure Jack Turnbull would have been delighted with this video!

Seeking the families of Stanley Jack and Annie Pott

The Marple Website is picking up the baton from the late Jack Turnbull in his mission to track down the WWI letters from Stanley Jack to his wife Annie (nee Pott). Please share this article linked below far and wide in the hope that we can reunite both sets of letters to tell the full story of two ordinary lives turned upside down by war.

The mission: to seek members of the Jack or Pott families who may know where Stanley's letters are today.
