Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

A Memoir of the First World War. My grandfather, William John Thomas Leaver, born in London in 1898, saw service in the Middlesex Regiment on the Western Front during the First World War. Before he died in his mid-nineties, he recorded a cassette of his memories of this time which I have transcribed to the best of my ability. Wherever possible, I have checked the names of places, but accuracy is not guaranteed. My grandfather was no linguist and deciphering his version of French or Belgian place names was challenging! The words on the page are as he spoke them. He was one of the lucky ones to survive the events of 1914-1918 without physical injury, though he had many close calls.
