This history published in three parts, one each for the Regular, Territorial and Service battalions (those raised during the war). This reprint covers the Regular and TF battalions, each with their own index; And deals with the Service battalions and includes the Roll of Honour and the list of Honours and Awards for all battalions. It also has a separate index. There are numerous sketch maps in the text but no illustrations. Battalions served on the Western Front, at Gallipoli, in Mesopotamia, Egypt and Palestine. By the end of the war the regiment had lost 4060 dead, collected 57 Battle Honours but was the only British infantry regiment not to get a VC.
In August 1914 the 1st Battalion was in Belfast, in 15th Brigade, 5th Division; it arrived in France on 16th August 1914 and fought on the Western Front throughout the war. Its worst experience was at Hill 60 at the beginning of May during Second Ypres. The Germans launched a gas attack which resulted in just under 500 casualties. At the end of 1915 the battalion was transferred to the 32nd Division with which it remained for the rest of the war. The 2nd Battalion was in India (Poona) when war broke out, part of the 16th (Poona) Brigade, 6th Indian Division. It took part in the Mesopotamian campaign, was besieged in Kut and captured when General Townshend surrendered in April 1916. Reconstituted in July 1916 it became Corps Troops in the Tigris Corps and in January 1917 it was allocated to 9th (Sirhind) Brigade, 3rd Indian Division with which it went to Egypt in April 1918 and from there to Palestine where it was when the war ended.
