History of Artefact The diary was started in 1940. His father's adventures in Egypt are listed. The diary is very worn as if it had been carried around with him. He was a wireless operator. It records his first time in Egypt and his feelings of leaving England.
Xmas day, the less said the better! On guard, no beer. Worst Xmas as yet.

Special Memories I now know more about my own personal history. I also feel that I know more about my dads life and his experiences in the Second World War.
