Follow the story of Private Neville Carson and his experience in the Middle East during World War II. Using his camera, which he was prohibited from having, Neville was able to depict and tell a story of his experience in the Australian army. This enabled the 19-year-old private to focus on the adventure of his deployment rather than its harsher realities. Told from the perspective of a normal young man, this story highlights the life-changing impact that the war had on even the most ordinary of lives. Such a detailed insight into a first-hand experience of the war, allows for a greater understanding of what soldiers were subject to during such difficult times in history.
