London Gunners.
London Gunners.

Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars History of the H.A.C. Seige Battery, April 1917 to November 1918, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London Gunners. (Hardcover)
The bare title "London Gunners" is very misleading as the book only deals with one unit - The H.A.C. Siege Battery - out of many London Gunner units, and this unit was only created in the later part of 1916, and only landed in France in April, 1917. As such it has proved of little relevance to my own research interests.
However if you are interested in the unit and the men that were in it, it seems to be a good example of readable unit history written immediately after the war by a gunner who joined the unit in November 1917, There are a number of photographs, line drawings and maps. There is a useful list of all the officers and men in the unit, with those who were killed clearly indicated. The short index does not include the names of officers and men named in the text.

It also has useful notes identifying sources and a good bibliography. (For a more deailed review on my blog see [..]
