The Mounted Riflemen in Sinai and Palestine by A Briscoe Moore NZMR

First edition, pages are good. The orginal covers of these books were not a hardback and the stiff card cover is coming away from the book and the previous owner has selotaped this to the book/spine. The spine is faded and previous owner has written the words "MOUNTED RIFLEMEN" down the spine.

a good collectible copy written by a member of the Auckland Mounted Rifles in WW1

The author of this book served with the Auckland Mounted Rifles which , with the Wellington and the Canterbury Mounted Rifles, a Machine-gun troop, a field troop of Engineers, a Signal Troop, a Mounted Field Ambulance and a mobile Veterinary section made up the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade. The approximate strength was 1,850 men and 2,200 horses. The brigade had fought at Gallipoli, where it had suffered severely, and following the evacuation had returned to Egypt to become part of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force. In April 1916 all the other NZ troops which had been in Egypt since the evacuation of Gallipoli left for France. The Mounted Rifles Brigade were then the only NZ troops remaining on this front though other units were added subsequently.

Moore has done a good job in redressing the balance and gives an impressive account of the very strenuous life of a Mounted Rifleman on active service and of the many hardships and difficulties encountered.
