Rate this:
Absorbed by his grandfather's war dairies, John Mathews began the meticulous task of transcribing the weather beaten text into a readable form once again. The result is a sobering first hand account of a New Zealand soldier during the ?Great War?. Like many young men of his day, George Maylen joined the army to see the world. As a Master-Mariner, he survived perilous events - after a riding accident, he remounted and a rode a further four hours to finish delivering an urgent order to Head Quarters; when his post was shelled he was on leave; and when he got hit by shrapnel, his tobacco tin absorbed the force leaving him unscathed.
