1st NRR Kenya & Abyssinia Jan to June 1941 Advance into Ethiopia [handwritten title on first album leaf]

Hardcover. 81 photos in corners mount one one side of 22 album leaves. Photos uniformly sized (10.5 x 7.3 cm., including narrow margins). Brief captions below photos (or pairs of photos) -- first in yellow and then, probably at some later point, traced over (more or less) in black ink. We removed a few photos to check their backs and found that they had also been captioned in pencil on the back -- occasionally in more detail although still briefly. Photos nicely preserved with decent detail. Empty spots where two photos are missing. Plain blue oblong album with a, surely later, black shoestring tie. Allied forces (mostly from the British Empire) began the East African Campaign in June 1940 against Italian Axis forces in Ethiopia, eventually emerging victorious in November 1941. The 1st Battalion of the Northern Rhodesia Regiment participated in this campaign (sometimes called the Abyssinian Campaign) which produced the first significant Allied victory of World War II. The compiler of this album is unknown to us but was probably one of its white officers, presumably from Great Britain. Very Good. Item #88238
