Running time

My dad was too young for the First World War, but he joined up in the Second World War, so both he and I were in the services together. He was in the Army in the 2/27th. He fought in Africa, in Egypt, and Syria…Yeah, we wrote letters. He came home. He got injured in Syria, and he got discharged, so he was out not long after I went in.
