Researcher Jonathan Greaves was amazed to discover in his Great-Grandfather's WWI diary, a rich treasure that warranted transcribing for others to read. A Christian in Khaki is an authentic first hand account of a WWI soldier's experiences as a gunner with the Royal Garrison Artillery in 1917-1918 in Egypt and Palestine. He records the sights and sounds of the countries, culture and companions he encounters, as well as personal observations about the war and campaign itself. He eloquently describes everyday life away from frontline action and offers a unique insight into the inner thoughts, feelings and spirituality of a Christian believer called up to serve his country at an older age than many. Fascinating for a wide range of readers, a Christian in Khaki is only partly an account of war, and more a record of a journey: both geographical and spiritual, through the hardships of troop life in one of the most decisive campaigns of World War I. It includes a Biographical sketch of Philip Bryant's life and a reflection on his life and devotion.
