More Fragments from France,, Bairnsfather, Captain Bruce
2 Bairnsfather, Captain Bruce More Fragments from France,
London, England The Bystander c 1917 First Edition; First Impression paperback Very Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Author 
Color inset on front cover. Cover is detached from staples but both front and back are there. Contents clean with great illustrations. Bruce Bairnsfather, the son of Thomas Bairnsfather and Amelia Every, was born in Muree, India, in 1888. Bruce's father was a Lieutenant in the Bengal Infantry. After attending schools in India and Stratford-upon-Avon, Bruce joined the British Army. Bairnsfather found army life boring and left the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and enrolled as an art student at the Hassall School of Art. After completing his training he produced advertising posters for products such as Lipton Tea, Players's Tobacco and Flowers Beer. On the outbreak of the First World War Bairnsfather rejoined the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and within a couple of weeks had been promoted to the rank of lieutenant. After the Battle of Mons the British Army was desperately short of trained soldiers and Bairnsfather was quickly rushed to the Western Front where he served with people such as Captain Bernard Montgomery and Lieutenant A. A. Milne. Bairnsfather, who was put in charge of a Maxim Machine-Gun section, was shocked by trench-life and even refused to take leave, fearing that once he left, he would find it too difficult to return. During the Christmas of 1914, Bairnsfather came close to being court-martialed after joining German soldiers in what later became known as the Christmas Truce. While on the Western Front, Bairnsfather drew pictures of trench life and in 1915 The Bystander magazine began publishing his drawings. Bairnsfather's work was extremely popular with the soldiers in the trenches and this helped sales of the magazine. This book is protected by an archival quality sleeve to maintain present condition. Scarce. ; Illustrations; Oblong 4to 11" - 13; 44 pages

This is the special Marine Corps Association Edition made available to it's members only through the Combat Forces press.

Naval Institute Press 1990 1557507252 / 9781557507259 First American Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Dust has been neatly glued by former owner to prevent loss otherwise fine. The "lendlease" former USS Buchanan (DD13) was renamed HMS Campletown and soom became a casualty of war on 28 March 1942 in Nazairre, France. Her story is fascinating as she became an example of a wrong made right by the relenting of Roosevelt to the pressure of those who pushed for the U.S. to help her friend fight the agression of Hitler. Roosevelt did not want to agitate Hitler. Think of what would have happened had he not relented and allowed the U.S. to enter into WW II.
