The Kia Ora Coo-ee ' edited by D Kent .
This brings together in one book directly the printed copies of the famous
AIF service paper/journal called the The Kia Ora Coo-ee. Whilst the official
histories are written long after the events there is a lack of immediacy which
is evident in these service papers which were printed on the day right there
on the Battle front. The Kia Ora Coo-ee was one of the most popular and longest
in print Australian World War One service journals. It appeared monthly between
March and December 1918. It was printed in Egypt and was distributed mainly
to the Lighthorse and support units in the Middle East. Thus it is a remarkable
record of the life and times of the Australian Lighthorse , Remounts Camel Corps.
This is a wonderful medal research book as there are numerous named individuals
AIF Members in every issue... get a load of the great of the frontespiece on
the 15th June 1918 issue - what a beauty. This book will really show you what
it was like to be there!
Gauranteed 100% Australian Digger Lighthorsemen Middle East content.
