In this section Dad has been posted to Palestine as part of the UN backed Mandated peace keeping force. Rather than type the letters I have scanned the and attached them in their original format. I hope you enjoy them.
When you read these letters you will feel, I have no doubt, that Dad didn’t much like the Jews nor did he have much time for the indigenous population either. He had no gripe in truth but he was a young man, not twenty, who was spat and shot at by Hagganah and the Irgun. Everyone hated the British at that time (for all sorts of reasons) and that siege mentality is reflected in both the language and the sentiments. Before you condemn him, if that is what you do, understand the context and that, years later he admitted he would have reacted in the same way had the roles been reversed.
