For Queen and Cumberland

£7.99

Product description

From the blurb;

"Jacob Reed joined the army to escape the disease-ridden poverty of 1840s Carlisle, but his years of peaceful soldiering came to an end with the outbreak of the Crimean War where disease and combat took their dreadful toll of life.

Army-mad Isaac Scott left a comfortable trade as a tailor in Penrith to join up, and found himself in India, where cholera was just as deadly a killer as the rebel forces.

Dan Daley, keen on sport and physical activity, found himself almost by accident in the army and fighting the formidable Boers in South Africa.

Martin Daley has taken three men from his own family history and painted a vivid and fascinating picture of their lives, from the details of their background and their lives in Carlisle and Penrith to their army careers and what happened to them once they resumed civilian life in Cumberland."

Excellent pages with slight edge-wear. Inscription on the front flyleaf.
