Description

This very rare collection of letters, recently rediscovered, is an engaging, well-written, first-hand account of life on the front lines told from the viewpoint of a serving New Zealand Chaplain. The letters of Chaplain The Reverend Clive Mortimer Jones, Vicar of St Andrews Church Cambridge, sent home to his parish, convey a strong personal sense of duty and awareness set amongst the grim realities of the ‘war to end all wars’. A Strong Sense of Duty provides a unique insight into the affects of combat on the men of the New Zealand Division and their families and communities at home during the final 14 months on the Western Front in France in the First World War. Accompanied by full background notes, maps and photographs and steeped in local Waikato history, this fascinating and important book also contains the most comprehensive list yet published of 140 Chaplains from all denominations, who served with the First NZ Expeditionary Force 1914-18.
