To access the original letter, email the Ready Division.
"I am ashamed to say that I never heard of the war between England and Abyssinia a hundred years ago. I have no papers on the subject and I do not find Abyssinia mentioned in the index to the official biography of my grandfather. ... you should write to the Duke of Bedford asking him if he has any papers of my grandfather's dealing with the episode that you mention which I was completely ignorant of until this morning."
