1 in stock

London: Hurst, 1883. pp. x, 325. Title printed in red and black with large steel-engraved vignette of the regimental badge. Green cloth over bevelled boards, title in gilt on spine. Regimental cap badge in gilt on upper cover. Spine expertly rebacked. Inoffensive old waterstain to inner lower margin of frontispiece and titlepage. A very good copy. Very scarce.
The Connaught Rangers, the ‘Devil’s Own’, the ‘Gallant Fighting 88th’, was raised at Portumna in 1793 by Colonel the Honourable John Thomas de Burgh, later 13th Earl of Clanricarde. The first gathering of recruits was under the Clanricarde standard at Portumna Castle in County Galway. Sprightly memoir of three decades of service with the 88th. Includes the West Indies, Turkey and the Crimea, Cashmere, Valley of the Scind, Himalayas, but largely relating to India with the briefest of possible mentions of the Mutiny.
