Postings

He walked from Egypt through the Sinai. The officers road on horses and donkeys and the ordinary soldiers had to walk. He caught Malaria at some point during this, whilst stationed at Palestine so he was transferred to a Hospital ship which was his favourite experience during the entire war.

Fashion

He had an eye for fashion but had to leave school at 14 to become a breadwinner so he ended up as a tailor.
