Padre, Prisoner and Pen-Pusher
Full Product Description
His story ran in parallel to that of Bishop Llewellyn Gwynne, Bishop of Khartoum, who had been in London in August 1914 and with the help of O'Rorke had been commissioned into the Army Chaplains' Department. Gwynne had prepared O'Rorke for confirmation. It is into Gwynne's office as DCG that O'Rorke would be posted. Gwynne's extensive war time diaries help to shed light on O'Rorke and his work. This book will appeal to all who are interested in how a regular army chaplain coped with mobilisation, life as a prisoner of war, and then of the ever lengthening war. It provides information on the large number of chaplains with whom he came into contact whilst keeping the diary. As well as an introduction and notes to explain the diary and other writings there is a discussion about the value of chaplains' diaries and letters in understanding the First World War. Additionally, guidance is provided as to where original source material can be located.
