Field Problem

July 2, 1918 – Full diary entry:

“Rec’d 2 letters + my pen from Elinore and a box of candy from Jane.

Had a field problem today.

Nora is still worried about next fall. The poor dear little girl I wish I could be with you.”


A field problem was (and is) a military training exercise. And just in case you needed proof about Robert’s pen:
