Condition is very good...some small light discoloration here and there but in general very clean and tidy....no dust jacket. Compiled and written by Officers of The Corps with the Foreword by Lieut. Colonel C.H. Evans, D.S.O. Officer Commanding N.Z. Cyclist Battalion, Mons, Belgium. An interesting and complete account of this small Corps which never had more than 800 officers and men on its strength. Almost the entire narrative is devoted to their services in Egypt and on the Western Front.
