PRIVATE No. 940 [Pseud. of STURGES (Robert Simon Mansfield)] "On the Remainder of Our Front." 1st Ed., 156pp. VG in sl. chipped dw. Harrison & Sons. 1917  #60395
[HLMainPic] Personal account of service in the 19th (PS) Bn. Royal Fusiliers, proceeding overseas in Nov. 1915, experiences on the Festubert & Cambrin fronts until posted home for a commission in Feb. 1916 (Sturges was commissioned in the MGC & later served at the War Office). An informative, unvarnished but atmospheric account of the battalion's experience of active service (at the time Sturges left it was pulled from the line & used as a potential officer pool before disbanding shortly after). Harrison & Son., favoured printer of the War Office, were not known for general book publishing & it is possible that this work was printed for the author. It is certainly rare. Orig. maroon cloth, titled in black, VG in sl. chipped but rare dw. See illustration on our website.   £225
