Last items in stock

The author of this book writes in the Preface, "My grandfather, Nelson Harold Ferguson, was a stretcher-bearer in the 15th Field Ambulance, 5th Division, Australian Imperial Force (AIF). He joined the AIF in July 1915. He was a Ballarat boy catapulted onto the global stage without any real warning or preparation. He worked in four horrendous battles: at the Somme, Bullecourt and at Ypres. In April 1918, at the battle at Villers-Bretonneux, he was severely gassed, eyes traumatised, and lungs damaged" 

Don Farrands takes the reader on journey with his Grandfather painting a grand canvas of his Grandfather's life both during and after the war - he used his grandfather's diaries and further research.

Thus the book would be of high interest to anyone researching the 15th Field Ambulance or indeed any stretcher bearer (life and times) during the Great War.
