Hell on Earth by F Haydn Hornsey
Hell on Earth by F Haydn Hornsey
5.0 out of 5 stars Ripping Reality, 31 July 2014
This autobiography reads like a boys own ripping yarn, but it really did happen! Absent are the poetic embellishments of Owen, Sassoon and Graves. Instead we get the stoic, pragmatic street language of the British Tommy, grammatical errors and all!

Not sure how long the strap will last, as I had a bracelet on the previous watch, but I'll just put a bracelet on this one if the worst happens.
