The Cotswolds – designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

The Cotswolds – designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Famous for picturesque villages of mellow honey-coloured stone, gentle hills, peaceful pastures and winding rivers. The Cotswolds were of great strategic importance in the Civil War; the king had his headquarters at Oxford and the Parliamentarians had garrisons at Gloucester and Bristol with sympathisers at Malmesbury and Cirencester.

It had little windows through which you could look right inside it. And in front of the castle were miniature trees . Everyone wanted to see this remarkable traveler who had traveled about in a fish's stomach, but the tin soldier took no pride in it. And in front of the castle were miniature trees around a little mirror supposed to represent a lake. The wax swans that swam on its surface were reflected in the mirror. All this was very pretty but prettiest of all was the little lady who stood in the open doorway of the castle. Though she was a paper doll, she wore a dress of the fluffiest gauze. A tiny blue ribbon went over her shoulder for a scarf, and in the middle of it shone a spangle that was as big as her face.

The Mespot letters of Frederick Witts, dating from December 1915 to December 1920, span a pivotal period of modern history in Iraq. As commander of No.2 Mobile Bridging Train, Witts was responsible for the crossing of the Tigrisat the Shumran bend in February 1917. This hugely difficult feat proved to be the beginning of the end to three hundred and fifty years of continuous Ottoman rule in Mesopotamia. After the war, Witts, as Brigade Major, was active in Kurdistan and on theUpper Euphrates, and later joined the staff of General Coningham, the most prominent British commander during the 1920 insurrection. Covering the peculiarities of day to day life in the officers' mess, the harshness of the country and the ordeals of war against the Turk and Arab, Frederick Witts' letters, written with affection to his aged mother in Upper Slaughter, give a compelling account of the life and thoughts of a British officer on service in Mesopotamia. Happily some letters from his mother to him also survive, and they give a vivid sense of the difficulties of life just after the first war for a Cotswold squarson family deprived of servants.
