From Gallipoli to Palestine: War Writings of Sgt GT Clunie of the Wellington Mounted Rifles

$45.00

Compiled by Kevin Clunie & Edited by Ron Austin

This book provides the reader with a view of the historic Anzac operations at Gallipoli, then the successful campaign in Egypt and Palestine.

Gary Clunie sailed from New Zealand in December 1914 with the Wellington mounted Rifles Regiment and did not return home until 1919. For much of the next few years at war Gary maintained a diary in which he recorded daily events, however, of even greater importance were the numerous, often frank and apparently uncensored letters he wrote to his older brother Will, a veteran of the Boer War.

Clunie’s war writings are an unvarnished and fascinating story of war, told through the eyes of a young New Zealand farmer who had enlisted in the Army to serve his country. #
