On Active Service

Following on from Anzac Day, we are delighted to have received from Colonel John Campbell the donation of a fantastic book, it is titled On Active Service ... 5177 O.R. Gatman 2 NZEF, September 1939 - November 1941.  It commemorates through the letters sent home to his family, the life at war of a New Zealand soldier, Owen Gatman, who fought for his country in the Middle East.  It is a beautiful book, and the story of Owen Gatman will be a familiar one to many families whose sons went to war.  We are thrilled to add this book to our collection, and this book will be read and appreciated by many of our students who have an interest in New Zealand's war history.
