History of the 1st & 2nd Battalions. The Leicester Regiment in the Great War by Colonel HC Wylly (originally published 1928)

I'd be very grateful if a kind soul with access to the above can look up two brothers who are related to me. Unfortunately, I can't afford to buy the book.

Albert Humphrey Pinder. KIA on 15 September 1916.

and

Harold Senhouse Pinder

Many thanks
