An unforgettable read about the WY in Natal is ‘A PEEP OVER THE BARLEYCORN’ In the Firing Line With the P.O.W. 2nd West Yorkshire Regiment, Through the Relief of Ladysmith now at Naval and Military Press for £8.99

The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.

Definitely agree with you there Rob, one for everyone's ABW library.
Very eloquently written with 'Jack the Sniper's' own experiences of the battlefield.
A pity he died, if memory serves me correctly, before publication. I think his brother published his memoirs posthumously?
I must have another read of the book!

Just to say the Riall family succeeded in re-acquiring Malcolm Riall's medals.
Thanks.
