A Long Journey to the Somme 1917 p01

A further extract from the diary of a Darwen man who volunteered for the Fourth East Lancashire Regiment during the First World War.
Mrs Nellie Garner unearthed her late husband Albert's diaries of his wartime service while looking through a drawer of old papers in 1982. Mr Garner had died in May 1968 when he was 72. Their daughter, Connie, transcribed the diaries before passing them on to the Imperial War Museum. The directness and simplicity of his writing is particularly impressive as he had left school at 12 ˝ years old and (in Connie’s words) ‘never pretended to be clever but he had learned how to write’.
