SYNOPSIS: This book is a memoir of one man's experiences in both the pre-war years and the war from 1915. While much of the book is devoted to the pre-war years and life in country Victoria, the book presents a unique insight into a soldier's experiences and memories written in later life. Roy Kyle began writing the notes for this book when he was 89, and then died before he had completed it. Bryce Courtney worked on the introduction and provides a chapter called "Background to the War Years". Courtney's notes provide useful background information that sets the context for Kyle's memories, without which Kyle would be hard to understand in some places unless the reader were Australian or had previous knowledge of Gallipoli.
