Mates,

I have been trying to get a copy of a few pages of this History by Austin for some time, but so far all those who have said so have not sent any.

I need to complete an article of the 1st Composite Australian LHR in the Western Frontier Force and would very much like to fill out New Zealands part in the operations there.

Can you help with just a copy of the pages of this History that deal with the 1st Bn NZRB in the Western desert between Dec 1915 and Jan 1916 only and in particular the actions from the 25th Dec 1915 and 23rd Jan 1916.

Thanks for any help here.

Cheers

S.B

Richard,

Many thanks for that, it great to see so much detail including orders which makes me now have to make a number of ajustments.

I did notice that one officer given to me as KIA 25 Dec 1915 at the battle of Wadi Majid is not listed amoung the 1st Bn NZRB dead?

Can you shed any light on this officer and his death.

Major Levin 1st NZRB

Cheers and thanks again to all.
