THE LONDON SCOTTISH IN THE GREAT WAR., Lloyd, Mark.

Author Name    Lloyd, Mark.

Title   THE LONDON SCOTTISH IN THE GREAT WAR.

Publisher    Leo Cooper, (Barnsley, 2001).

Seller ID   15412

256 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, reproductions. "Initially with the Ist Guards Brigade and later with the 56th (London) Division, the Ist Battalion served in France and Flanders throughout the War. They were the first Territorial soldiers to be committed to battle when, at Messines in 1914, they suffered one-third casualties and were among the last to disengage. So dedicated was the London Scottish to the prosecution of its cause that, by November 1918, the Ist Battalion included only three survivors of the original Battle of Messines. The 2nd Battalion saw action in campaigns as diverse as France and Flanders, Ireland, the Balkans and Palestine where it won two Victoria Crosses. (This book) does not merely set out to recite the oft-told details of famous battles fought and won. Rather it employs a wealth of previously unpublished war journals, diaries and photographs to provide a unique insight into this most auspicious Regiment. It vividly demonstrates the hopes, sufferings and aspirations of the volunteers who not only filled its ranks but, in most cases, made the supreme sacrifice in its cause." Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling. F/NF
