1 Doulton, A.J.F., Lieut.-Colonel. Foreword by Lieut.-General Sir Reginald Savory. THE FIGHTING COCK: BEING THE HISTORY OF THE 23rd INDIAN DIVISION, 1942-1947.
Aldershot Gale & Polden 1951 First Edition Good+ Good- 
318 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H). B&w photographs, maps (including 2 fold-outs at rear) - collated. "Here is the story of a famous Indian Division which will be of interest not only to those who wore the 'Fighting Cock' badge but to those who served in the campaigns in Burma which led to the defeat of the Japanese, covering as it does the whole period from 1942 when the Division was formed to the victory in Burma and later in Java. The book contains a particularly vivid picture of the blood-bath in Java and shows how, in this little-known 'war', the Division kept bright its reputation for gallant conduct and high endeavour." Tiny to small stains at bottom of pages 20/21 - migrate slightly into adjacent pages, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny bump at top corner and light cloth fraying at bottom corner of front board, some light wrinkling of cloth on rear board, slight browning of edges. Dust jacket has several small tears and very small chips, general light soiling, slight darkening to spine, light edge wrinkling, light rubbing, browning to inside surface.
