Richard Cook was a young man when he went off to fight in WWI, taking his beloved Bible along, and he died near Passchendaele on October 10, 1917, aged 26 and never returned to his home in Colac Bay, west of Invercargill.
Before he died he had lost his bible in a trench near Messines, in Belgium, in June 1917 and it probably lay there until it was found the next year. In April, 1918, it was covered in mud when it was found by British soldier, Herbert Hodgson, 25, who fell into the trench.
