[HLMainPic] A rare history presented in the form of a small pocketbook with rexine covers, the idea being that "revised pages may be issued from time to time." Whether this actually happened is unknown, but Perkins records a copy with the same pagination as this example, noting: "This curious book is a combination of technical information concerning the Battery's deployments & much irrelevant comment regarding the progress of the war in general. Few members of the Battery are named in the text, but the nominal roll... is certainly of interest..." I would add that the chronological record, 1916-19, is useful & informative. Includes Roll of Hon. & nominal roll noting awards. See illustration on our website.   £145
