The collection is comprised of correspondence, articles, telegrams and official military documentation collected and received by Martha and George Lockyer from their son, Chris Railton Lockyer who died on active service (17 August 1917) in the Battle for Hill 70, near Vimy. The collection also includes a number of letters from Alec Lockyer to his parents and siblings. This material was organized by Don Lockyer into two named volumes "Far from Home" and "Somewhere in Europe". The volumes intersperse non-contemporaneous articles and materials framing and contextualizing this material within a larger narrative. Also included are some supplemental letters, photographs and a memorial marker for C.R. Lockyer.
The collection is comprised of sixty letters written during the years of 1843 to 1872 to George Copeman in England.Fifty-three are original letters, four are copies of the originals which are housed in the Dr. Albert E Senkler, (EJS’s son) collection at the Minnesota Historical Museum in St Paul, and three that were transcribed by hand by his grandson Edmund J Reynolds ( EJR) but the whereabouts of the originals is no longer known.
Transcriptions of the original letters are also available and appear to have been transcribed by EJR, perhaps in the 1920s.
