An Army Chaplain's War Memories, by Fr, Henry Day, S.J., ME, (Burns, Oates and Washbourne, 5s.) Reviewed by DOUGLAS V. DUFF

It is extremely seldom that a reviewer can pour out unstinted praise upon a book, but here is an occasion when he can. Perhaps that is not quite accurate, it is for the man whom this very modest autobiography reveals, that one's reverence and admiration rises in unstinted measure.

Father Day was over fifty when he landed at Gallipoli, a great age to the soldiers of twenty whom he served. Most of us during the days of the Great Adventure met chaplains, and it is sad to say that those of Fr. Day's calibre were very few and far between. He seems to have been always in the forefront of the charge, right in the first wave, whenever he had the chance. Yet there is not one boastful word from first page to last, only a simple, holy and wondrous veneration for his duty.
