About this title:

Synopsis: 4 August 1914 saw the British declaration of War on Germany and, in his ‘digs’ in Hampton, Middlesex, nurseryman James Sadler resolved to enlist to serve and play his part in what was to become known as the Great War 1914–18. 28 August 1918 saw the same man, now infantryman Sgt. James Sadler M.M, being stretchered away from the battlefield at Hardecourt aux Bois in France, his part in the conflict complete. During the interim period, James Sadler had seen action on a number of the major battlefields on the Western Front, including Armentières, Ploegsteert, Loos, the Somme, Arras, the German Offensive of 1918, and the Allied Advance in the final 100 Days. In Gardener to Fusilier: The story of James Sadler M.M., 9th Royal Fusiliers (Service) Battalion, 1914–18, his son, James Sadler, takes the record that his father made as he convalesced in the family home in Swanage on return from France, and combines this with his own research into his father’s experiences. These are coupled to those of the 9th Royal Fusiliers (Service) Battalion, the unit in which his father served during that period, forming part of Kitchener’s First Army in the 36th Brigade and the 12th (Eastern) Division. The story of one infantryman’s experiences are intertwined with those, often brief, details given from his Battalion’s War Diary, giving insight into what he and his comrades faced in the campaign. This account not only includes the first hand recall of the thoughts and aspects of facing battle, but also includes one man’s personal comments on what he was asked to undertake, those whom he served with and under and the, often ignored, aspects of the routine and drudgery which were also part of the experience. Gardener to Fusilier makes no attempt to generalize about the British Tommy of the First World War; it aims at being the honest recall of one man and his fighting unit in a conflict which, even today, leaves its mark on our society and world.

About the Author: A qualified Mechanical Engineer, James Sadler is retired following a teaching career which spanned over 30 years, much of which was spent as the Head of Mathematics at a large Comprehensive School in Wiltshire. Born in Twickenham, Middlesex in 1947, James grew up to realise that his father, also James, had played a full part as an NCO infantryman in a major action in world history, the First World War. James, senior, died in 1951, aged 61, leaving personal records in the form of two handwritten books relating his experiences as part of Kitchener's First Army, with the 9th Royal Fusiliers (Service) Battalion, 1914 to 1918. From his mother, the younger James was to learn that it had always been his father's wish for these to see publication. In bringing this wish to reality son, James, has carefully researched the time his father spent on the Western Front, transcribing his father's work along with the War Diaries of the 9th Royal Fusiliers. A member of the WFA, James has a keen interest in the many aspects of the First World War and a number of visits to the battlefields of northern France have enabled him to link the personal aspect of his father's recollections with those of the Battalion, the 36th Brigade and 12th (Eastern) Division. Like his father who, in 1914, enlisted from his lifetime occupation as a gardener/horticulturalist, James is a keen gardener and sportsman with major interests in cricket (an E.C.B. Qualified coach), rugby and football; his relaxation also takes in amateur photography and music. James has three married sons and lives, with his partner, in the Dales area of North Yorkshire.
