Made up entirely of volunteer civil servants and their friends and despite the Government's reluctance to release them, the Prince of Wales' Own Civil Service Rifles fought with distinction at Loos, the Somme, Messines, Cambrai, Salonika and Palestine. As casualties mounted, the Rifles' spirit and loyalties strengthened. The Author draws on numerous personal accounts, graphically written, as well as official records.
