How it works


Demy 8vo; original green cloth, lettered in gilt on spine and upper cover, and with regimental device to upper cover; t.e.g.; pp. xiv + 271; several plates; illustrations in text. Cover very lightly rubbed; ownership inscription to front free endpaper; some light foxing to endpapers, and occasionally elsewhere. Very good condition. (Hackett, p. 180; Mendelssohn II, p. 245) 

'"A plain soldier's narrative of the part taken by the 2nd Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers" in the Natal campaign, together with an account of its "grim fights on the hills which fringe the borders of the River Tugela, its long and weary marches across the rolling uplands of the Transvaal, and its subsequent monotonous life of constant vigil in fort and blockhouse, and on escort duty.' - Mendelssohn, quoting the preface.
