KURDS TURKS AND ARABS by C. J. Edmonds

Dear All,

Capt Denehy of 32 Lancers, IA, is mentioned in the - no doubt scarce - book "KURDS TURKS AND ARABS" by C. J. Edmonds.

Can anyone happily in possession of this book, please scan and beam me the (probably quite small) part: presumably to do with Denehy's 1919 Kurdistan action...

Kindest regards,

Good Morning, KJL

 

    The book by Edmonds is available from www.archive.org  as a digital download.  It's rather clunky, as it has been scanned 4 pages at a time -but the text is clear

Thanks for that - are we both suffering from Insomnia (it is my back - Stenose)...

Is this the text?

The other is somewhat similar, but I am unsure of the source: probably "Campaign in S. Kurdistan 1919".1853621177_KurdsTurksandArabsC.J.Edmonds.png.34041d59d0578078b59b271dc8236d2a.png988901015_CampaigninS.Kurdistan191932ndLancers.jpg.b124c71f105975efb01c8663b458c878.jpg

Denehy had no Citation...

Kindest regards,

Kim.

Dear All, 

I tried www.archive.org but I failed to get anywhere. 

It looks like I need some assistance: sorry to be such a pest!

En passant, perhaps someone DOES have the Denehy Citation?

He does not appear in Peter Warrington's otherwise very helpful "MC Book" - Kurdistan 1919 having been very much the Great War aftermath.

Kindest regards,

Kim.

 I cannot see a text by Edmonds (Cecil John, not Sir James!!)   that directly uses words such as Turrkistan.

 There is a recent publication that seems to use  papers by Edmonds of that time  and seems to cover the time-frame you want:

   I have not seen this book in the flesh but I am sure Maureene will be along with more details in due course.

Very difficult to read on a fixed screen. Perhaps easier on a mobile device?

Cannot find a citation for any of the MCs listed with Denehy. So I think they were all for outstanding service rather than for a particular action.

Dear All, and Mike,

After much clicking around with outdated equipment, much trial and error, and the link provided by all you GWF enthusiasts in the first place, I finally got what I needed. Thanks!

To put atmosphere and a face on the Text, I attach the then Capt Denehy's medals and a photograph (thanks, David Rao) taken of him perhaps a year or so later, for your general interest...

Kindest regards,

And here are:-

Dear Mike,

Hey, It worked! 

Having been quite pleased to have cyberly extracted the page 47 Denehy saga from "Kurds, Turks, And Arabs" - I can now read the whole thing. Super!

Thanks for your guiding hand and mind.

Kindest regards,

Kim.
