[HLMainPic] Cooke went to France with 5th Royal Horse Artillery Brigade in 1914. Subsequently commanded a Battery & gives a very good account of The Battle of Loos, when he acted in support of 15th (Scottish) Div. In 1916 he took a newly raised New Army battery of the 34th Div. to France & fought with them on the Somme until August when selected to form a gunnery school in India. Later served with 60th (London) Div. in Palestine 1917-18 including the capture of Jerusalem. Falls says "This last is particularly interesting as he gives a graphic account of the capture of Jerusalem, into the suburbs of which he must have been about the first man in the British Army to penetrate." Orig. blue paper covd. boards with wheat cloth spine strip, paper label to front board, VG & very rare: no. 42 of 200 numbered copies printed. See illustration on our website.   £245
