Comments: Neil Doherty’s Grand-Uncle Mick wrote a letter to his sister, Neil’s grandmother, from the trenches of Gallipoli in May 1915. It was found in an old wooden chest among other treasures, many years later in a family cottage at Kulpi, Queensland.
This very personal account, using his keen sense of humor, was written in the trenches only weeks after landing on 25 April 1915. This letter graphically describes his experience 100 years ago at Anzac Cove; and gives an inspiring and touching insight into the character of a man fighting for his life and his country.
