A year and a half after his older brother had been killed in action during the Battle of Pozieres, 20 year old Joe Clark went against his father’s wishes and left his job as a timber cutter in Tasmania to enlist in the Australian Light Horse.
Seventy-three years later, at the age of 93, he sat down with the Mt Evelyn RSL’s historian and for the first time recorded his wartime experiences.
It is a story of sacrifice and endurance, bravery and loss, good times and bad times. An ordinary young Australian surviving extraordinary times.
With a foreword by Major Tony Geyer
