    Published by Tuckwell press 1999.
    Deals with political and economic issues rather than military but lots of interesting facts.
    Front cover shows 1st Bn Edinburgh in March 1913 just before leaving for Aldershot.
    PM Thomas Clark on the left.

    First edition Quetta 1923, puplished by the London Photo Co Lahore.
    An unrecorded work of 35 photo's on 18 leaves. In the original printed wrappers with string ties, includes a portrait of Lt/Col S.H.Eden C.O.
    The 1st Bn moved from Allahabad to Quetta in 1922. Loosely inserted postcard, sent by a member of the battalion to his father, the writer apologises for not sending a letter, since he has been"warned for a flying patrol". Motor lorries waiting now I have only 30 mins to turn out am going to Landi Kotal pass.
    PC below, have also included a photocopy of Landi Kotal pass in the 1920s home to the Khyber Rifles.
