Very rare history of Eighth Corps operations from Normandy to the Rhine. 172pp.,maps, frontispiece, folding survey maps in endpocket. Very good condition in chipped, still useful coloured dustwrapper. Handwritten signed presentation inscription from the Corps Commander General Richard O'Connor to the well known author Arthur Bryant. The inscription explains how (Bryant's) writings meant "so much to me during my captivity".General O'Connor, the then highly successful desert commander was spectacularly captured by a German reconnaissance patrol in the desert in 1941 and until his escape in late 1943 spent his time in an Italian POW camp. He returned to England and commanded a full Corps from 1944 until the wars end. Copies of this book are exceptionally rare, and to find one in a dustwrapper with the ultimate inscription from Sir Richard, the Corps Commander, who himself had a larger than life story to tell, makes it unique.

Item Description: 1896-1904, 1904. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Substantial original photograph album to the South Wales Borderers / 24th Regiment. A private album possibly maintained by Captain Casson, who is named in a number of photographs. Much of the Album relates to successful sporting activities by the Regiment, namely Polo, Tug-of-war, Tobogganing, Football, Boxing, Gymnastics & Football. Each sport normally has a large plate photograph of the team (all named) in their sporting kit and often some images of the event and the location. The quality of all the images is very high with most individuals being easily recognisable. Other sections include Officer characatures (based on photographs and all named), and a selection of Polo ponies. Locations include Egypt (with at least a Battalion paraded in front of one of the pyramids), Davos (where the Tabogganing took place with some excellent images of an officers group gathered around their sledges etc.), Gibraltar, India (where the inter-Regimental Football Tournament took place) and Brecon with what are probably more domestic photographs of the Beacons and a lady on horseback. etc. etc. Over 130 photographs, almost all of a very high quality and many 10ins X 12ins. An important record of this famous Regiment around the turn of the 19th century, contained in a very large half leather album. Please confirm postage costs. Bookseller Inventory # 7187

A useful account describing both his experiences and feelings in detail. 106pp., plan. The letters mainly written to his father are anonymous with an occasional "Nen" ? However the book has a signed contemporary inscription from Mrs Farr and of the small 2nd Volunteer Battalion contigent on RMS Tintagel an H.Farr is listed so this certainly identifies him (he mentions others on the list) 106pp., somewhat blemished red cloth with later red cloth around spine, black titling to cover as published.
