The City of London Yeomanry (Roughriders)

£40.00

Product description

Published by The Hamilton Press Ltd, London (1936). Hardback. First edition.

The campaigns of the London Yeomanry. Includes black and white photographs and a number of folding maps. With a Foreword by General George de S. Barrow, G.C.B., K.C.M.G. Colour frontis plate. Gilt R.R. design at the head of the spine.

Taken from the Foreword:
The City of London Yeomanry had its birth in the South African War, and ended its days with the termination of the Great War, when it was converted into the City of London Yeomanry Battery. During the period of its comparatively short life there can be few military formations in the British or any other army that have seen active service more varied than that which fell to the lot of the Rough Riders. South Africa, Gallipoli, Egypt, the Desert, Macedonia, Palestine, France what a record it is!

Illustrations include:
The Rough Rider (Review Order) From a Painting by T. C. Dugdale, A.R.A. Frontispiece,
On Parade at Woodcote,
Suvla. Major Croshaw sniping,
Ayun Musa,

(All are fold-outs bar the Judaean Hills which is printed on page 190.)

CONDITION: Good. Covers are clean with light bumps to the corners. The spine is slightly faded but otherwise very good with very minor bumping to head and tail. The pages are tanned with some scattered foxing (see photos) but are otherwise mostly clean. Fold out maps are intact and un-damaged. No inscriptions or notations. The binding remains good. No DJ. Please note, the small black marks present in some images (as next to Hamilton's name on the main image) are the fault of the camera and not the book itself. (See photos)
