I am trying to get a copy of H A Foley's two books, Three Years on Active Service, and The Scrap Book of the 7th Somerset Light Infantry.

 

I have tried Bookfinder etc.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

'Three years' is very rare , if you are wanting to buy a copy . I've only seen about three copies for sale in the last fifteen years . Tom Donovan had two copies

for sale about ten years ago ( I seem to remember they were the author's own copies ) and another came up for sale on e-bay about two years ago. Libraries

may hold copies (  IWM ? ) but otherwise you just have to keep looking at the usual sites like Amazon , Abe and e-bay and be lucky !

Should you find a copy  of The Scrapbook of the 7th battalion check that the supplement by Brig Gen. Preston White entitled 'Cambrai' which came as a separate booklet with the main title is present. The 'Three Years on active service' book is in a curious Library style green binding I have seen several copies of this and all were bound the same .

Good Luck

I recently got a copy of The Scrap Book. If you want some info from it, send me a private message. I tried to find the other one too, but haven't had any luck. Interlibrary loan services at my university library even failed. Have you had any luck?
