[HLMainPic] Doctor at a base hospital in France then MO to 3rd Bn. Grenadier Guards from mid-1917 to 1918. "Mr Dearden, a well-known writer, served as a medical officer on the Western Front. The chief fault to be found with his diary is that it is in fact not a diary at all, for the entries are undated. Otherwise it is good. The little trivial incidents of life in a base hospital, 'the daily round, the common task,' are described in an interesting way. The operating ward is dealt with impressively but with dignity. The later sketches of the line are equally good. Mr Dearden writes well & thinks sanely" - Falls. Orig. red cloth, gilt, VG & uncommon. See illustration on our website.   £75
