‘Buried Letters’ is a short piece of award-winning creative writing based on Chloris Drabble who, during World War 1, left nursing in the Huddersfield Infirmary to join the Scottish Women’s 7th Field Hospital at Lake Ostrovo in Macedonia, in 1917, where she fell in love with a Serbian interpreter and was irrevocably changed.
