A young couple found a letter on the wall of the bathroom about the tragic story of the death of a young World War I soldier.
28-year-old Phil Hubbard found his heart when he was redecorated.
23-year-old soldier Walter Harrison and his parents broke a string of letters on a wall in a hole.
Surprisingly, 25-year-old Phil and his girlfriend Rachel dunkangbi found scraps of paper after the boy's parents received notice of his premature death on 101.
They were found in good condition in February 5.
From February 5, 1917 to 101.
Found at their home in Shelton, Birmingham
The old document was accompanied by a photo of his grave.
In a letter, Walter asked his parents to send cakes and cigarettes to France, where he fought against the Germans.
Phil said: "I found a handwritten home book from Walter, in which he described his situation in France, but could not say where it was, how cold it was at night, the same was true when the Germans attacked.
Walter wrote: "Dear Mother, please put all the best cans in the cake if you send a package.
"The weather is good during the day, but it gets very cold at night when the fun starts.
But another story is about the tragedy of German shells hitting the bunker where Walter was located, causing the bunker to collapse.
Walter was taking care of a lieutenant's fire, and the lieutenant wrote to Walter's parents: "I am very sorry to report the death of your son yesterday afternoon.
"It was an instant to find his death during the inspection.
It is a comfort to know that he cannot suffer any pain.
"He was my servant last month.
As a man, he always does his job well and he is one of the best.
He is very popular among comrades, and everyone is very sad.
Phil was interested in the future generations of Walter.
"As I learned more about Walter, I began to feel a bond that made me want to find his family even more," he said.
"They found that he had only served in the Army for 18 months and was one of the first to be sent to France from Birmingham, working in the ammunition department before the war.
He's not married.
He found the former neighbor, Valerie, who was originally Walter's niece.
Valerie, Phil said, "only knows he died of war, nothing else than that ".
It is believed that former residents knocked a hole in the attic and stole Christmas decorations from their neighbors, while "letters must have fallen from the wall and stayed there ".
Valerie and his relatives were delighted to receive letters from their ancestors.
Phil added: "When we finally returned the letter to our family, I was gratified that something so old and preserved so much memory returned to where it was supposed to be.
