9781873832332: Three Cheers for the Derrys!: A History of the 10th Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers in the 1914-18 War Based on the Recollections of the Final Veterans

Seventeen years ago, YES! Publications, published the local classic "Three Cheers for The Derrys!" a history of the 10th (Derry) Battalion based on the recollections of veterans Jim Donaghy and Leslie Bell. This is a moving story offering a startlingly honest account of the suffering, hardship, comradeship and bravery of young men who were known as the 10th (Derry) Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers. Written by Gardiner S. Mitchell, the book was an instant success, selling rapidly and gaining critical applause from military and historical enthusiasts for its first-hand, realistic, and non-sanitised testimonies of once naive young men who swiftly matured in the battle-hardened regions of France and Belgium. Demand for a reprint has now been more than adequately satisfied. The author has completely revised and enlarged the original text, and added many digitally enhanced photographs, some never seen by the general public before. The Roll of Honour, contained at the back of the first edition of the book, has been totally updated by English World War 1 aficionado, Robert Elliott and will undoubtedly be a beneficial tool for anyone seeking information on relatives who served with the 10th Inniskillings in the Great War. Arguably, the greatest addition to the new version of 'Three Cheers' has been the recollections of forgotten 10th Battalion veteran, James Monteith. Mr Monteith served as a runner with the 10th Battalion the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers.
