The internal thick card pages have photos mounted on one side and are generally good, no foxing but with some minor dirty marks around the edges. They are slighty distorted, but not damaged.
The book is in reasonable, intact condition, considering its age.
The red cover is faded, scuffed and bumped quite badly on the corners. The spine is intact.
This was probably compiled as a souvenir for the soldiers.
A scarce and valuable record of the Military.
