Frank Richards had already spent several years in the coal mines of South Wales before joining the Royal Welch Fusiliers in 1900, at the age of 17. This classic memoir, first published in 1936, is a rare account of service life of the period by an ordinary soldier and covers his enlistment, basic training and long posting to India and Burma up until 1908. The foreword is by Robert Graves.
