This is an unusual Great War Regimental history in that it was compiled halfway through the conflict, and also contains a huge amount of detail – including biographical notes – on the battalion’s officers and other ranks. It cover all units of the Manchester Regiment – Regulars, Militia; Special Reserve; Territorial and New Army volunteers; and contains Rolls of Honour of Officers, NCOs and men killed from the outbreak of war until early 1916. It is a little book – but a truly vast storehouse of information : names, dates, details – which is a must for anyone interested in the regiment and the war.
