This album belonged to the uncle of a Palmerston North resident. Trooper Clarence Boyce, of Sefton in Canterbury, spent the war in the New Zealand Expeditionary Force in Egypt. This album has the usual snaps of camp life and tourist shots of exotic cities, but it also contains some of the more disturbing elements of war like public hangings and corpses piled in the sand. His military record lists him as suffering from illness twice, but also indicates he suffered from cardiac dilation at the war's end. He came home to New Zealand in March 1919.
