The history of a Territorial Force battalion in the 49th (West Riding) Division which arrived in France in April 1915 and fought with that division on the Western Front to the end of the war. In the opening chapter the author notes that the task of the battalion and of the division was more often to "stand and wait" in the trenches than to engage in the more widely known and spectacular attacks of the war. They certainly had their fill of the Ypres Salient. By the end of the first year in France, in April 1916, the total casualties amounted to 126 killed and 453 wounded. By the end the total dead numbered some 750 all ranks. The narrative provides a good account of the battalion's experiences with frequent mentions of individuals, casualties and awards. Most useful is the fact that each page is headed with the date (month and year). There is a list of awards in the appendix. Reprint of the original edition circa 1931.
