About

In 1917 my Great Uncle signed up (with his parents' permission) to serve in the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) alongside the allies in the Great War (World War 1 as we know it now). He meticulously kept a daily account of his experience during his enlistment and training in South Australia, his journey to Egypt, then Italy, France and England before facing action on the Western Front. After the Armistice his battalion marched to Belguim where he waited to be returned to Australia.

While this is an important historical account for my immediate and extended family, it is also a valuable insight into the war experience of a young 19 year old Australian soldier.

In order to proceed with the publication of this diary I need to sell 120 copies. To do this i am asking for a $30 pledge for a single copy of the diary. A $50 pledge would see you receive a copy of the published diary and the chance to nominate a library (or RSL Club / War Memorial / school etc) to receive a copy.

Risks and challenges

Risks - I don't get enough support to proceed with printing.
Note:
This is the first project I have attempted to fund via kickstarter. My understanding is that you will not be charged for any pledge until October 26, and even then, only if the target is achieved. I receive none of your personal information and will need to contact you for mailing details.
