Voluntary Infantry of Ashton-under-Lyne 1859-1971  
Robert Bonner  
 
The Ninth Manchesters had splendid achievements as is shown in their Battle Honours, many unique to the battalion. Their many awards for bravery include the Victoria Cross to Lieutenant William Forshaw, an Albert Medal & a George Cross.

57 handsomely reproduced photographs and seven maps illustrate this 192-page hardback A4 volume. 13 chapters describe the early days & the Volunteer Service Companies for the Anglo Boer War. On to the battlefields of Gallipoli & the Western Front in WWI. Then in WWII off to France with the BEF, a period in Iceland and then to Italy with 4th Indian Division & later, in piercing the Gothic Line, with 46th Division.

Extensive biographical notes and 9 appendices list the men who served in the Boer War, Rolls of Honour and honours & awards for both world wars.

Forshaw VC is undoubtedly the most important soldier of the Ashton battalion and 18 pages are devoted to his biography & previously unpublished photographs.  

Price: £ 20.00
