Nelson at War 1914-1918 (Hardback)
The History of the Nelson Battalion
The Royal Naval Division was formed at the instigation of Winston Churchill at the beginning of the First World War. At first under the control of the Admiralty, it fought at the defence of Antwerp in October 1914 and through the whole of the Gallipoli campaign. In 1916 the Admiralty handed the Division over to Army control. Re-named the 63rd (Royal Naval) Division, it fought with great distinction and success with the BEF in France and Belgium. The book traces the history of Nelson Battalion from August 1914 to February 1918 when it was disbanded. A full roll of honour is also included.
