I Go Where Most Men Go

“I Go Where Most Men Go”, tells the history of an Anglo-New Zealand infantry company formed in London in the early days of the Great War, which World War One was later referred to as. It comprised engineers, gentlemen, seamen, farmers, copper and silver miners from Spain, gold miners from Africa, builders, clerks, businessmen, Rhodes scholars, civil servants, entertainers, medical students, school leavers, dentists, decorators, artists, clerks, accountants and labourers. Some worked in England, others were merely visiting relatives when war was declared, and then there were those who travelled to England just to serve King and Country. One man had fought in the Spanish-American War, and several were South African War veterans.
After years of research the author, Clement Wareham, provides a fuller account of this company and their achievements during the Great War, which gives these men their place in history along with the dignity that they deserve. This formation was known as the British Section and was trained by Captain Lampen on Salisbury Plain.
Their civilian trades were needed for the newly formed ANZAC Corps, and the men were quickly employed as the nucleus of a much-needed Engineers and Army Service Corps Divisional Train, serving on Gallipoli and the Western Front.
The book also provides brief biographies of each man who served, along with their wartime experiences.
