As I Sit In The Dusty Attick .....

I opened the box which I found inside the captains chest wrapped in old woolen blankets . First to catch my eye a book "A Brief Record of the Advance of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force under the command of General Sir Edmund H.H. Allenby ,G.C.B,G.C.M.C  July 1917 to October 1918 . Inside a host of maps and over two hundred pages of detail it also contains newspaper clippings from the Palestine News placed between the pages giving a soldiers view of the war .
Toward the back I come across a letter written but never sent ,the author Pvt Robert Bones 316177  15 CCM EEF



Next a picture of the regiment ...








Then some small memento,s





A soldiers bible .....




His purse with money .......





Thankfully Robert came home .....
