In May 1940, my leave was cancelled and I was called for training, at St Mary's Bay, Kent, in the use of a new anti tank gun. My first letter home is from there.
On 21st May, our unit of Irish guards were travelling back to our base when we were stopped and turned around at Dorking, Surrey. We were being sent to France.
These are my letters home from May 1940 onwards.
Book of blog published tomorrow.
The book of this blog will be available on Amazon tomorrow we hope. Here is a preview of the cover meanwhile.
