Norman Edgar Hassell was born 6 September 1894, at Akatarawa, Upper Hutt, New Zealand. He served in World War One and wrote his memories of that time in retrospect, c. 1941 - 1942. Photographs of Norman Hassell in uniform and Norman and 'Pony' Johnston on camels at the pyramids in Egypt are also contained. Other illustrations of war scenes are pasted in. The typescript was typed by his daughter, Mrs Joan Christmas, from a rough draft which is thought to have been destroyed.
