Edward Casey, an underfed, under-sized and semi-literate Irish Cockney from Canning Town, was no war hero. Even so, his account of four years of war service with the Royal Dublin Fusiliers is a remarkable chronicle, revealing his personal and sexual insecurities, his remarkable experience of Irish unrest during periods of training and leave, and his excitement as a military tourist in France, Salonica and Malta.The memoir was written in 1980, six decades after his departure for New Zealand, yet retains a strong Cockney flavor. The editor has selected the chapters with the greatest interest for Irish readers, placing Casey s story in the broader context of the Great War and its sometimes devastating psychological consequences."
