Cpl. Sidney Wilson wrote the letters in 1944 which were shown to his daughter Connie Regier in 2019
The weathered ink from Cpl. Sidney Wilson’s letters say the words he was never able to bring himself to utter again after he returned from the Second World War: “I love you.”
The words were written in 1944, four years into Wilson’s service, and were addressed to his family, including his daughter Connie Regier — now 81-years-old.
“I cried and cried and cried. I opened them and saw his handwriting and I realized how vulnerable he was. He was so young,” Regier said.
