Well received on publication in 2014 to coincide with the one hundredth anniversary of the start of World War One, Tell Mum not to Worry: A Welsh Soldier’s War in the Near East was based on the letters of Dewi David, a sapper in the Royal Engineers who spent four years from the ages of 17-21 on campaigns which led him to first Gallipoli, then Egypt, the Suez Canal, Sinai and Palestine, culminating in the capture of Jerusalem by British forces under General Allenby in December1917 and the eventual surrender of Ottoman forces. His experiences and the story of the campaigns by British Empire forces in the Near East are told in the book above (ISBN 9 780993 098208).
