Summary
Many chaplains were not permitted to go near the Front in WWI - others insisted on doing so, like Kenneth Best, in the Gallipoli Campaign. In his diary we follow his progress through his initial training in Egypt and on to his arrival in Gallipoli in May 1915. He records his efforts to comfort the wounded and bury the dead
