Going into Support Tonight

Author(s): Richard Palmer


Richard Palmer, formerly of Nelson, has spent the past eight years writing the book called Going into Support Tonight, which tells the story of his great-uncle Roy Haycock who fought in the 12th Nelson and Marlborough Company during World War I.

Haycock was a farmer from Hope, and was only 20 years old when he enlisted to fight in 1916. The book was written with the aid of two diaries belonging to Haycock. Both are now in the possession of Palmer. 

One of the diaries was with Haycock when he was killed in action at Passchendaele in 1917 and has a bullet hole through it.
