Book: The Old Contemptibles: A Photographic History of the British Expeditionary Force August - Decemeber 1914 by Keith Simpson

I have never seen this before. Published in 1981. Found it in an Oxfam shop for £2. Remarkable. 176 Photos, most of which I have never seen before. A definite buy. MG

How well are the photos annoted, as in is there more detail than "a party of stretcher bearers in 1916"?

Cheers,
