Published by Woodfield in 2000, 200 pages. Paperback (N4481)

From the rear side cover: This book tells the story of Robert Burns, who was born in November 1895. In 1914, aged 19, he joined the Cameron Highlanders and went off to fight in the First World War. He was at the battle of Loos in 1915 and the Battle of the Somme in 1916, and he was fortunate to survive when so many of his comrades and friends fell....

He lived to be almost 105 years old and as such became the oldest surviving member of the Camerons to have fought in The Great War, and this book records his First World War experiences in detail, and also sketches out some additional facts from his post war life.

The condition of the book is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover
