Item Description: Midas Books, 1st UK ed., 1983. Xvii + 189 pp., photo-ills., + ills. D.j., 24 x 16cm. FINE. Fighting horsemen were of supreme importance to the Great Moghuls who, in time, through trial and error, developed a system by which they could raise many Cavalry formations at short notice. In reluctant tribute to the Asian style of warfare, the British in India adopted much of this Moghul Cavalry organisation, and continued its role as the decisive arm in battle. This book is the story of Cavalry in Asia, with particular emphasis on its development in the Ind Pak sub-continent, covering the history and exploits of all the Cavalry Regiments of the Indian Army and their way of life ; the sport and social aspects.

Item Description: 1979. Spelhurst. Midas Books. [1979?]. Landscape 8vo., ringbound card wrappers. With reproductions of 10 pencil drawings by Frank Wilson on 8 pages. Slight marking to wrappers otherwise a very good copy. With Major General Hamid's business card loosely inserted. First (?) edition of this selection from Hamid's memoirs. Major General Hamid's Introductory note explains the publication of the book. "Drawings by Frankie Wilson. Lt Col. FAH Wilson (Known to all as Frankie) was born on 1st Deceember, 1901. He was commissioned in 2nd Royal Scots Fusiliers and later transferred to 19th King George V's own Lancers. While in service he roamed around Baltistan and Ladakh after ibex. After retirement he served as Queen's Messenger for thirteen years which assisgnment he called "the flying chaprassi". Frankie was a great artist and all enjoyed his sketches and drawings. He drew for "Tradition" magazine whose editor was Lt, Col. JBR Nicholson and which was published by Belment - Maitland Publishers Ltd. Frankie drew many pictures for me but of all I like best is "A Day in the life of a Cavalry troop horse". Frankie was a good friend of mine and I miss him." Wilson is also known for illustrating some of the One-Upmanship books by Stephen Potter. His drawings here are reminiscent of Lionel Edward's drawings to illustrate Kipling's The Maltese Cat. The book So they rode and fought by S. Shahid Hamid illustrated by Frank Wilson. was published by Midas Books in 1983. The only institutional record for this publication is a British Library copy which predates this selection to 1979. It would therefore appear that this is the first appearance of Wilson's charming drawings of the day in the life of a cavalry troop horse. Major General Syed Shahid Hamid was a 2 star general in the Pakistan Army and a close associate of President Field Marshal Ayub Khan who played an important and an instrumental role in bringing Field Marshal Ayub Khan to power in the 1958 coup d'Ã tat that overthrew the government of President Major-General Iskander Mirza. He was accepted to Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, England in 1932. He received a commission on the Unattached List, Indian Army on the 1st February 1934. He arrived in India on the 16th February 1934 and was shortly afterwards attached to the 2nd battalion the Prince of Wales Volunteers (South Lancashire) regiment at Allahbad. On the 12th March 1935 he was admitted to the Indian Army and joined the 3rd Cavalry at Meerut. Bookseller Inventory # 2076894
