Preface

 

Todays events are tomorrow's history, the problem is most people living now do not realise the importance of recording the event for future generations, unless it is written down it is lost forever. Accounts of events that happen whether taken from a diary or written for news, become a valuable source of information for the historian.

The following chapters are taken from a diary and letters of a young man in his late teens and early twenties. When writing down his thoughts he didn't think them to be spectacular, but from the time he went to fight for his country his life changed and it will take longer then his lifetime for the memories to fade.
