FIFTH IN THE GREAT WAR. A History of the 1st & 2nd Northumberland Fusiliers, 1914-1918


The Northumberland Fusiliers (NF) raised more battalions during the war than any other of the regular army regiments – 51 in all – and its total of dead was the highest, 16000. This history, however, is concerned only with the two regular battalions, the 1st which was in Portsmouth in August 1914, and the 2nd which was in India.
