Correspondence from the men serving overseas regularly made it “into print” as the
editors of local newspapers and some journals were only too happy to publish their
letters home for an audience eager to read details of the campaigning being undertaken
in far off foreign fields.
The links from this page are intended to provide an overview of the East African
campaign and the activities of the 25th Battalion Royal Fusiliers (Frontiersmen)
through the letters home of the men who were there.
