This book is based on the Journal of Sergeant Fred Mundy DCM for the period his battalion served in the First World War.  The Journal covers the time the Battalion was in India 1914 – 1917 and service in Palestine 1917 – 1918. As there is no official record of the time in India and the Battalion’s War Diary for the time in Palestine has little personal information Mundy’s Journal is a valuable record of the Battalion’s activities.   It formed the basis of the official histroy of the Battalion.  The original Journal contained many photographs, postcards and sketch maps drawn by Mundy.  The postcards were a record of Mundy’s travels around India while he was on leave.  Most of the sketch maps have been included in the book.  Only those photographs which provided a reasonalby clear print have been included.
