[HLMainPic] Campaign in Egypt & Palestine 1916-18. Battles of Romani, Gaza &c. Roll of Hon., awards. Falls wards a coveted star & states: "The story of this battery is somewhat baldly told, being to a great extent a summary of the war diary, but its record is interesting. The Australian Light Horse & the NZ Mounted Rifles, which formed at firts the bulk & later a great proportion of Sir Archibald Murray's & later Lord Allenby's mounted troops, had no artillery, & British Territorial horse-artillery batteries were attached to their formations & to those of the British Yeomanry. Most of this battery's service was with the Yeomanry Mounted Division (later 4th Cavalry Division) under the vigorous command of Gen. Sir George Barrow, so that it saw fighting of the real old horse-artillery pattern, almost unknown in most theatres of War. The book has a great number of excellent illustrations." Orig. wheat cloth, gilt, VG. See illustration on our website.   £65
