My Dear Chick: A New Zealand Love Story, 1911-1948

Author(s): Beth Sutherland


Between 1916-19 Len Wilton, a young Wairarapa farmer, was 'away at the war', serving on the Western Front, including at Passchendaele. Unwell, and close to a breakdown, he later spent time at Brockenhurst Hospital in England. Meanwhile, at home, neighbouring farmer's daughter Ilma McLachlan carried on with her life which she recorded in her diaries. Len's letters to his "Chick" and Ilma's diaries form the heart of this book which also records their early and later lives.
