Inniskilling Diaries 1899-1903

By skillful use of three contemporary diaries, the author has created a fascinating and highly readable account of a famous infantry Regiment, the Royal Inniskiling Fusiliers, in the Second Boer War.The three diarists, two officers and a private, saw the campaign from very different perspectives. The book traces the progress of the Fusiliers from first mobilisation at Mullinger, Ireland in October 1899, through the poignant send off at Queenstown the voyage to South Africa.Once ashore, the Regiment was to be in the thick of the action at Colenso, Spion Kop, Vaal Krantz, the Relief of Ladysmith and then onto the Transvaal and Orange River Coloney before returning home four years after their departure.
