Soldier turned his violin into WWI diary

2 posts in this topic

A soldier transformed his violin into a fascinating diary of his life in the trenches and the battles he fought - by carving names and dates into the wood.

Ernest Johnson etched notes of where he had served into the back of the wooden instrument, which he used to to entertain troops during the First World War.

The violin, discovered in a plastic bag in a loft, has been fully restored and the poignant diary entries - which include names of infamous Great War battle fields - remain in place.
