Westralian Cavalry in the War. The Story of the Tenth Light Horse Regiment, AIF, in the Great War, 1914-1918

Melbourne, Alexander McCubbin, [1921].

Octavo, 343, [1] (colophon) pages plus 3 maps (2 folding), 86 plates, and 7 folding maps in a rear endpocket.

Decorated cloth a little stained on the rear cover, and lightly stained and sunned on the spine; endpapers offset; trifling signs of use and age; a very good copy (internally excellent).

The two-page foreword by Lieutenant-General Sir Harry Chauvel describes the author thus: 'Lieut.-Colonel Olden is well qualified to undertake the work, as, joining the Regiment on its inception, he served with it throughout the War, and, though twice wounded, was never long away from duty. He temporarily commanded it during the absence (wounded) of Colonel Todd on more than one occasion (notably during the 2nd Battle of Gaza), and finally succeeded to the command after the death of Colonel Todd'. He was awarded the DSO. Dornbusch 399; Fielding and O'Neill, page 233; Trigellis-Smith 280.
