As Albert Slater lays his wife to rest, his raw pain mixes with old scars from the First World War. That pain has stayed with him throughout his life, but protecting his children’s innocence he has kept it from them. He decides to write his story for them to read when he joins his wife in heaven.
He writes how his training had him feeling confident going into the war; how that was shattered in his first action; how he endured the rest of the war and how he settled back into sedate rural English village life.
‘From the Mud’ is one man’s story and his way of keeping the memory of his fallen friends alive.
