The Two Days in Your Life is a fictional story that takes place in a true setting. The Great War (1914 – 1918) did happen and Australian soldiers were involved in the fighting from April 1915 until the cessation of hostilities in 1918. The battles such as Bullecourt, Pozieres, Ypres did take place and Australian soldiers were involved and the cities/towns of Ameins, Corbie, Lahoussoye and Querrieu are also real.
No doubt there were men serving in the 1st Australian Imperial Force who had names similar to those who appear in the novel but the names of the fictitious characters were chosen at random and that is what they are; fictitious.
Although it is a novel the story is intended to be a tribute to the signallers of the Australian Army who have from the Boer War to the present day carried out the important role of maintaining the lines of communication so that the Commanders in the field have been able to make informed decisions on when and how to deploy their troops. At times maintaining the lines has meant working under extremely difficult and dangerous conditions.
