This is the history of the Sportsmen's Battalion, Royal Fusiliers 23rd service battalion, which consisted almost entirely of men from the world of sport or entertainment. The battalion was privately raised and took men up to the age of 45. This book covers the battalion's beginnings in London and progression to Hornchurch, France and then Germany.Biografía del autor:
