I note a new book to be published by Pen & Sword Books entitled Manchester Bantams.  Author Caroline Scott.  Due for publication in November.  Has anyone any information?

Thanks Tim.

If the material on the website is a foretaste of the book, then it is going to be a valuable addition to the history of the Regiment in WWI and I look forward to reading it.
