Soldier's First World War battlefield diary finally back in Canada
Canada.com
Joseph Goldie Fairholm was just 19 when he stepped into a war that forever changed his life, and very nearly took it. During a year of living dangerously, in and out of the trenches in France and Belgium, the wide-eyed Edmonton private put his impressions, aspirations and complaints on the pages of a cloth-bound 1917 diary from T.J. & J. Smith's in London. Sized to fit in his uniform pocket, it was nonetheless roomy enough to tell a gritty, engrossing war story from the point-of-view of a young man in the thick of it at Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele.
