From the rear side cover: Walter Pateman grew up in the Gypsy community of Famborough Village, Kent. When he was conscripted into the Middlesex Regiment in June 1916, he left at home a wife and four young children. He was never to see them again.
Using the diary, letters and memoirs of some of Walter's comrades, plus a number of official sources, his great nephew has been able to develop a clear picture of Walter's life from his arrival in France in October 1916, until his death in a trench raid in February 1917...
