First and only edition, no other copy traced. This copy owned by Capt. John Fox, Brigade Veterinary Officer, signed by him on the first blank together with seven other senior officers including Brig.-General Heyworth, Commanding XXth Brigade. A few pencilled annotations to the portrait plates noting wounded or killed. The text is essentially a calendar for 1914 with brief notes as to significant events relating to the Brigade through the year, accompanied by snippets of text, humorous and factual.
