Interestingly, the first inside page tells us the origins of the slang phrase 'Gun Fire', explaining it was a term for the early cup of tea served out to troops in the morning before going on first parade. In the War recruits in training always had Gun Fire supplied to them, as the work before breakfast was often particularly gruelling.
Condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs but is clean and bright, the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. Their is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
