Kelly’s 12 Christmas Days

December 10, 2016

Thomas Kelly lived a life of service and adventure through two World Wars, the Indian Raj, Imperial expeditions and World War Two convoys.

That remarkable story is told in full in Fighting for the Empire but a glimpse of where he was on 12 Christmas Days through that action-packed life offers a colourful flavour of his story.

Many readers will have relatives who selflessly served in these conflicts too so these stories and Fighting for the Empire hopefully give them some insight into how their relatives lived and how they celebrated Christmas.
