1 DALLAS H.W. YOUNG 1942 - 1946 SUPER, ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY AND JOURNAL OF NOTED BRITISH SOLDIER, MBE RECIPIENT AND THE FATHER OF A DISTINGUISHED HERO OF WORLD WAR II
COBHAM SURREY ENGLAND 1942 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a superb, original World War II and beyond manuscript diary handwritten by Dallas H. W. Young dated January 1942 to October 1946 being a fascinating and eclectic melange of intelligent observation and commentary on the global war news, family business, his toy soldier hobby, malaria bouts, and his return to the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regiment [since the Commandos are being disbanded after the war] and many references to his distinguished, famous and future author, son Peter, including entries about big war events, with Young Sr.'s analysis: Stalingrad, Pacific war events, D-Day, a very interesting dissertation on what the Atomic Bomb might mean to mankind, written the day of Hiroshima, as well as notes about Ghandi and the trouble he was causing the British. Included in the book are a few ephemeral items including one very interesting letter signed by W.G.H. Rawlinson a former Captain connected to Dallas. The letter makes a sadly bigoted reference to Harold Laski and 'yidds'. BIO NOTES: Mr. Young was a senior civil servant in the India Office in the 1930s/40s, [we note that Dallas Young was awarded an MBE] and his son was a quite famous war hero and later author: Brigadier Peter Young, DSO, MC. Peter Young joined the newly-formed Commandos, and landed with them at Dieppe, Sicily and on D-Day, being decorated for bravery each time. It's a journal style notebook, lined diary, 8 inches by 6.5, approximately 300 pages, overall G.
