ON ANZAC Day (25 April) we take
a moment to remember those that
fought for our freedom, but with
very few World War II veterans
left to recount their stories, it is
left to the current generations to
pass them on to their descendants,
who would struggle to comprehend
a time when 18 year olds were
conscripted into battle and food
shortages were a reality.
One such story can now be expe-
rienced with the publication of Au
Revoir My Darling, a collection of
hundreds of letters between Ken
McFarlane and his wife Eileen.
Separated by war but bound by
their love, Eileen and Ken wrote
to one another every week of his
six-year service in World War II.
Their letters, since inherited by their
daughter, are both funny and mov-
ing, a richly descriptive reflection of
the experience of being separated
from those you love for a lengthy
period of time.

being sent to Syria, Palestine and
Au Revoir My Darling
An Intimate War Correspondence 1940-1945
By Heather Haughton
New Guinea, Ken vividly conveys the
physical and emotional hardship of
wartime, his yearning to be reunited
with his family never far beneath
the surface of his writing.
Eileen's letters, equally moving,
tell of the challenges so many war
wives faced, adopting the role of
breadwinner and caring for their
families on their own. Taking
up poultry farming to provide an
income, she must learn to build
chicken sheds, deal with recalcitrant
chooks, quell family tantrums and
control her two precocious daughters.
Bringing the Australian homefront
to life, Au Revoir My Darling is a
moving and entertaining tale of a
love that lasted a six year separation
under the hardest of conditions,
told first hand through the letters
that kept that love alive.
