Notes

First and only edition, uncommon COPAC has BL and IWM only, OCLC adds a copy in the Devon Libraries System. "This brief history of events prior to and during the Battle of "Dujailah" was originally the subject of a paper read by me to the Barnstaple Rotary Club many years ago. I willingly agree to its present publication and for the following reasons:- First and foremost the 6th Battalion The Devonshire Regiment, are now no more, and unless there is some permanent record of this kind, then what this Territorial Battalion did, during that epic and tragic period covered by this account, will be relegated to the limbo of forgotten things" (Preface). First hand account of fighting in Mesopotamia, 1916.
