  1. I have Abbott's Recipients of the Distinguished Conduct Medal 1855-1909 and Brown's For Distinguished Conduct in the Field 1939-1992. Is there any publication that fills the gap 1910-1938, preferably with citations? My particular interest is pre-World War II Palestine. Regards Harry
  2. Cazack Greetings I cannot comment on the medal roll but Peter Charlton's excellent 227 A4-size-page book CINDERELLA's SOLDIERS. THE NYASALAND VOLUNTEER RESERVE has an Appendix No. 6 - Roll of Nyasaland Volunteer Reserve Members awarded Africa General Service Medal with Bar Nyasaland 1915 for Chilembe Uprising. 247 names are listed, 10 are Europeans and a Doctor from 1 KAR, and the remainder are Europeans on the Nyasaland Volunteer Reserve plus a few government officials. Good Luck. Harry
  3. Cazack Greetings " In October a hired Camel Corps of 972 camels arrived from Baluchistan, but these beasts were from cold regions and were long-haired, and unsuitable for work in Somaliland." The above is from an article of mine that might interest you at: http://www.kaiserscross.com/188001/484743.html Harry
  4. Greetings All (or Jambo!) In June a book of mine will come out which is a compilation of all the awards made to the King's African Rifles and East African Forces in BOTH World Wars and in ALL theatres - British, German and Italian East Africa, Madagascar and Burma. There will be descriptive text and ORBATS, and award citations will be shown in full where available, or instructive comments made on the likely locations of the actions. To hopefully make more people aware, particularly in East Africa, of the military history on their doorstep a new website - The Heroes of the East African Campaign of World War - can be found here: https://www.heroes.guerrillasoftsavo.com/ It is being maintained by colleagues in East Africa. My aim is to post fairly short , well illustrated and easily understood articles with complete gallantry award details where relevant, so that local people can relate to the brave deeds of their ancestors in fighting against dictatorship and evil. Please take a look - you should at least enjoy some of the hundreds of colour photos that I have taken during many safaris around the battlefields. (This in no way inhibits my activity with the Harry's Africa and Harry's Sideshows webpages which will continue to receive more detailed and involved articles on larger military actions.)

  5. Hello Harry,
    My name is Rishi and i am working on 1961 Goa conflict as a side project.
    If ever someday i am able to put up some decent work, i woud like to put it up as pdf for readers or maybe publish some copies. I wish to be neutral and put in more of Portuguese side of the stories which are lacking in all the books published in india or by indian authors.
    Is it OK if i save the pictures shared by you on forum and use them in the book?

  6. Az Greetings If you haven't already seen it you may be interested in this article on the Malay States Guides in Aden during the Great War: http://www.kaiserscross.com/304501/514322.html Harry
  7. Cazack Greetings Here's the History of the Indian Mountain Artillery: https://archive.org/details/IndianMountainArtillery Harry
  8. I believe this to be a photo of 'Bowker's Horse', EAMR. And here's my photo of Longido viewed from Namanga.
  9. Noor Greetings Here's a photo from the East African Standard showing the first grave that the Germans put William into. An article should appear soon on The Soldier's Burden website about the 29th Punjabis, who were the infantry element of that attack on Longido. You will be able to then follow the stages of the battle. Harry
  10. Melissa Greetings You will find some information on the 14th (King's) Hussars in northern Persia in 1918 here: http://www.westernfrontassociation.com/great-war-on-land/other-war-theatres/3305-dunsterforce-part-1.html Harry
  11. The Durham Light Infantry Regimental Memorial. This is located inside the grounds of the Chief Secretary's Official Residence, just behind the Governor's House. It is not available for viewing by the public. (Credit for the last three images goes to Khonoma Tours & treks, whose page with the photos can be found on Facebook.)
