1st ed., 1923. Xv + 272 pp., frontis., + 18 photo-plates + 27 maps, 7 of which are fldg., 1 large & cold., with 4 partly cold. Original yellow cloth ; 22 x 14cm. A little foxing to edges & some margins o/w V.G. The 12th (Eastern) Division was formed from the first of the Service Battalions raised in August, 1914. It retained this order of battle throughout the war, with the exception that, in February 1918, three battalions were disbanded in the general reduction and in April, 1918, the 1st / 1st Cambridgeshire Regiment joined, absorbing the remnants of the 7th Battalion, the Suffolk Regiment. In recounting this history, the aim was to narrate the doings of the Division that does not profess to be a complete record but one that is as accurate as possible since it was based upon a study of the war diaries of all units in the Division from the date of their formation to the close of the campaign. This history is illustrated with a total of nineteen photograph-plates and twenty-seven maps, seven of which are folding and one of those is large and coloured.
