Synopsis

100 years ago, my grandfather A/Bbdr Richard Francis Walshe and his comrades set acrossthe channel and their great adventure had truly begun. This post will chronicle his activity on a daily basis. I hope to be able to fill in the missing detailsfollowing their last war journal entry of 3 May 1919, while their Brigade was still in Orp-le-Grand, Belgium and continue to their arrival in Halifax.
