Good Bye Bill Massey

'Good bye Bill Massey No more Khaki' is the story of Reg Hird's experiences in WW1 told through 54 letters and postcards sent to sweetheart, Nellie Dean in New Zealand. Reg was a sergeant in the NZ Rifle Brigade and fought on the Western Front in France and Belgium. His letters date from early 1917 to mid-1919. They are well written, often long and detailed, describing some of the battles as well as giving impressions of camp life in NZ, Australia, England and France.
