A collection of 150 letters are to go on display at a Military Museum in Carlisle.
The hoard was collected by the museums curator following a phone call from a relative of soldier Harry Canham, who served with the Kings Own Border Regiment.
The nearly complete collection documents his time fighting in the Far East.
The equivalent of one a week was sent during his time there. Only two are missing from the collection.
"He's telling his family when he is embarking from Southampton on his way he drops off at Alexandria for refuelling, re-provision of the shop and onwards through the Suez Canal to the Far East. So it is just mundane stuff but of vital importance in these years of commemoration of the First World War."
150 letters written by a soldier during the First World War have returned to their regimental home.

The event, which is being held at Hammonds Pond Park, is in aid of Hospice at Home in Carlisle and North Lakeland.
