DescriptionOriginal and typed copies of letters relating to the First World War service of 3872 Gunner Stephen Philip Boulton, 2nd Field Artillery Brigade. These letters were written by Stephen Boulton to his Family in Sydney, NSW, between February and 31 December 1915. In these letters, Boulton describes the voyage to Aden, his work with horses aboard the ship, camp life in Egypt, the varying news coming from Gallipoli, his anticipation at embarking for the peninsula and life in the trenches. He also complains about the level of censorship applied to soldiers' letters and, after a bout of dysentery, Boulton discusses the conditions of convalescence in Malta. Both the original letters and typewritten copies were made available to the Australian War Memorial in 1928 by Boulton's mother, Mrs Dora Boulton.
