"I was only sixteen" - Generous Donation to Mooroolbark Library

The widow of author Roland Griffiths-Marsh has kindly donated two copies of his memoir, I was only sixteen, to Mooroolbark Library.

Roland was sixteen years old when he volunteered to fight in the Second World War. This is his honest, devastating account of his service in North Africa & the Mediterranean.  

I was only sixteen won the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Non-Fiction in 1990 & Best Australian Book of the Year from the Foundation of Australian Literary Studies.

The book is available on our catalogue, so check it out - I was only Sixteen by Roland Griffiths-Marsh.

Our warmest thanks to Mrs Griffiths-Marsh for contributing this important book to our collection.
