An Anzac's story
A typical Anzac, fiercely patriotic, Albert Roy Kyle (or Roy, as most people knew him) was born at Corowa, NSW in 1897. He enlisted in the A.I.F. in 1915, several months underage, but with his parents’ reluctant approval. He spent his 18th birthday in the terrible trenches of Gallipoli and then went on to serve on the Western Front in France and Belgium. An Anzac's story is an honest, poignant account of a young man's experience of war. Bryce Courtenay, who helped get Roy Kyle's memoirs published, has provided a moving introduction to his life and times.
