AN ONLOOKER IN FRANCE

by Sir William Orpen 






The original, published in 1921, is now very scarce. The narrative tells of the author's experiences in France and Flanders in WWI. He moved from HQ to the Front Line and witnessed much of the fighting in 1917 and 1918. The book contains his finely reproduced portraits of soldiers, officers, and scenes of the battlefield. Many of these have been rephotographed from Orpen's original works drawn from the Imperial War Museum in London and the National Gallery in Dublin. The book which is from a limited edition of 550, each numbered, has a hand-printed dust wrapper and is presented in a matching slip case.

RESPONDING TO THE CALL

 by Colin Fox et al
 

The Kitchener Battalions of the Royal Berkshire Regiment at the Battle of Loos in 1915. This is the first of a series of four volumes produced by the University of Reading. This volume, which is particularly scarce and sought after, covers the 8th Battalion's action on 25th September, 1915. Commencing at 0630h, by nightfall 493 of the 800 officers and men had become casualties. Three weeks later the survivors, together with their fellow volunteers from the 5th Battalion, went into action again. They suffered heavily, with little to show for their bravery.

ON THE SOMME

by Colin Fox et al 



The Kitchener Battalions of the Royal Berkshire Regiment at the Battle of the Somme in 1916. This is the second of a series of four volumes produced by the University of Reading. The scale of slaughter and suffering on the Somme was appalling. The assailants were mowed down in swathes. This booklet describes how the 5th, 6th and 8th Battalions of the Royal Berkshires played their part but in the event, the Somme battles made only limited gains. The regiment's battle honour 'Somme 1916' served as as an acknowledgment of duty done for monarch and country.
