Hi Chris

I have a copy of this book and it is indeed a wonderful record of the Natal battlefields, with photograpohs taken when the memorials, cemeteries and battle damage were still fresh.

My copy is leatherbound, with the title on the front cover in gold lettering and with a gold shield on which is engraved the initials, DBD. It was bought by a friend at an auction in Pietermaritzburg for SA Rand 600. His wife (now widow) found bookworm holes on the cover and ordered him to return it to the auction house. I saved him the trouble by buying it for the price he had paid. There has been no sign of further bookworm damage.
