Kitchener’s Last Volunteer


Just started to read. My maternal Grandfather, Fredrick Matthews MC, a South Wales Steel Worker, volunteered in 1915 and fought in the trenches (Gallipoli, France, Belgian) for the rest of the war. 

Update: Finished book and a great read about a long life. There is also a Newham connection. Henry was brought up in next door Walhamstow and went to a school in Newham and used local libraries.
