This copy with the ownership inscription (dated "18/5/57") and stamp of the "Officers Mess 5/1 Punjab Regt" (front free endpaper); the Punjab Regiment, the senior regiment in the Pakistan Army, was formed in 1956. Copac cites Imperial War Museum only among British and Irish institutional libraries; OCLC adds three locations (Michigan, Texas and US Army Heritage).
