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. Detached from the NZEF, the Corps was assigned to XXII Corps as Mounted Troops. In the event, they saw much hard service at Messines, Gravenstafel, Passchendaele, Kemmel, etc in the infantry roll and as cable layers. The appendices are particularly helpful to genealogists and to medal collectors.
