Toronto couple finds stash of letters from WWI soldier

A collection of letters, photos and postcards dating back to the First World War has turned up in a Toronto home.

Joel Cormier and Ashley Cameron found the letters in a box in their attic a few weeks ago.

The dozens of letters and postcards that have resurfaced were sent to a woman named Hilda MacLeod decades ago.

They appear to have been sent by a soldier named N.E. Waring, who describes the horrors of war to the woman receiving the letters.

Cormier and Cameron are hoping to return the letters to relatives.
