Notes

First and sole edition of this extremely uncommon memoir, Library Hub records the British Library copy only among British and Irish instructional libraries, WorldCat adding National Library of Ireland and universities of Calgary and Chicago. Ball-Acton was commissioned ensign in the 51st Foot (King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry) in 1851, and served with them in the Second Anglo-Burmese War, and throughout both phases of the Second Anglo-Afghan War, commanding during the second. An excellent account.
