Light to Light, Day Three

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 22:14:00 +1000

The third and final day of the Light to Light Walk at Ben Boyd National Park. This was a shorter (8 kms) easier walk. A nice way to finish the journey. Interactive map for this route.                       Tags for this post: events pictures 20170313 photo scouts bushwalkRelated posts: Light to Light, Day Two; Exploring the Jagungal; Light to Light, Day One; Scout activity: orienteering at Mount Stranger; Potato Point At the end of the previous Spike Milligan war memoir, Spike and his comrades had just been packed up into a ship to start travelling to Africa to engage the Nazis. This book picks up straight from there are follows them from first arrival in Africa to their first experiences of combat. Spike fought in the Battle of Longstop Hill, where his artillery unit played a part in victory. Along the way Spike loses his first close friend to enemy fire. Spike has an amazing talent for taking a tough subject and making it interesting and light hearted. Its not disrespectful, but shows that there were moments of levity in difficult times. Much like the previous book this one was very readable and I enjoyed it.
