Published 'in memory of Lieutenant Norman R.J. Meagher, killed in action in the Great War 4th October 1917', this book tells the story this mans experience in the War.

Norman entered training to serve in the 40th Battalion in October 1915, which sailed from Tasmania for war on the 2nd July 1916. The book is largely a compilation of letters written by Norman Meagher to his parents and friends in Tasmania. They include stories of what was happening in the war, descriptions of events and places he saw, memories and thoughts and beliefs he held.

Written by a brave, thoughtful and intelligent young man, these letters give a sobering first-hand insight into the events of the First World War.
