    I think that your comment is on the right track, but maybe #civilianaddress might capture it more completely.

    There's no year on this page, so I'm wondering when all this occurred. It sounds like a very active time around Ypres.

    Was it early in the war? It often seems that as the war went on, these little actions, like writing thank you letters, fell by the wayside, or at least stopped being recorded in the diaries.
