Happy in the Service
Percy provides his unique personal experiences in hand written diaries he kept throughout his service, and describes the highs and lows of being away from the comforts of home while facing the horrors and carnage of battle at close quarters and the bombings and shellings from afar, together with the mateship and camaraderie between the courageous men and women thrust into such conditions.
About the Author
So at 100 years I still carry on … never a dull moment as I let my mind drift over the many years. I have enjoyed my many years of living and met many, many nice people, travelling many lands, meeting people of many tongues and colour.
I shall never forget my work, my friends, my relatives and my family … too many to mention by name … you are all wrapped up in my heart and mind and that is what will go with me.
Here is my story … I hope you enjoy my journey
About the Editor
From sitting on his knee as a young boy listening to his stories of his early childhood and war experiences to chatting with him well into his nineties as he recalled various life experiences and elaborated on the words he had written in pencil or pen and ink in his fragile memo books, it was difficult not to be mesmerised by his adventures and his compassion and love for his fellow man despite his exposure twice to the horrors of war, testament to his faith and devotion to his God.
