Letters from a soldier

My father became a soldier when he was 19, joining up to be part of the big adventure that was called World War II. It was late January, 1940 when his first letter home arrived from his training camp in Auckland, where he was part of the NZ21 battalion (5th brigade), along with his older brother Cliff. 2,119 more words
