Brigadier Philip Napier

Brigadier Philip Napier was filmed at Brecon Regimental Museum, reading the letter written by his great grandfather Joseph Napier in August 1915 in Gallipoli. The letter was written to Joseph's mother about the death of his father Major William Napier, in Gallipoli on 13th August 1915.

The Imperial War Museum has some fascinating interviews with Joseph Napier from 1984 about his experiences in the First World War as an officer with the South Wales Borderers in Gallipoli and Mesopotamia 1914-1917 and as a POW in Turkey 1917-1918 www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/80007301
