The Padre's War Diary: Based on the Personal World War II War Diary of Rev. Major Mike Dalton OBE.

Excert from newspaper article below (Rob Gowan The Sun Times)

Brian Dalton thinks his uncle would be pleased with the way he has presented his Second World War diary in his new book.

I think he would approve," Dalton said recently from his home on Owen Sound's west side. "Like anybody who does something after somebody dies, you wish you would have done it earlier."

This past summer Dalton completed and published his book, The Padre's War Diary: Based on the Personal World War II War Diary of Rev. Major Mike Dalton.

Dalton's uncle, who died in 2009 at the age of 107, was born in Goderich in 1902 and grew up in the community of Kingsbridge. He went on to serve as a chaplain with the Essex Scottish Regiment from 1940 to 1946 during the Second World War.

Known as Padre to his comrades, over the last four years of his service Mike Dalton kept a diary where he wrote entries during his time between his officer's and chaplain's duties, detailing his time in England and at the front in France, Belgium, Holland and up to the border of Germany.
