Did you know war was declared on August the 5th, 1914? Two mates Roy and Wally decide to go to war. On the boat to Gallipoli they meet their new six-bob-a-day tourist, Tom. They thought it was going to be a great adventure. But when they landed they discovered the horror of war. All go together, only two of the trio return. Everything in the book I liked except the writing was a bit hard to read.
